Kontoor Brands, the owner of Wrangler, Lee and Rock & Republic, has appointed Tammy Heller as chief human resources officer.
Heller will join the business on 29 September from Perspecta where she has served as chief human resources officer and senior vice president since 2018. Prior to that, she was vice president of global human resources at CGI and also held senior HR roles at Capital One, Freddie Mac and BearingPoint.

Our people and culture are our most critical assets, and we’re thrilled to add Tammy to our executive team to continue to evolve these efforts as we enter a new phase of growth.”
