“We are pleased to welcome Ken to Abercrombie & Fitch Co. He brings more than 40 years of highly relevant consumer retail experience to our board and has extensive knowledge in finance, risk and compliance, and more,” said Terry Burman, Chairman of the Board. “Ken is a great listener and a strong leader with a collaborative style. His experience as a global executive of a world-class consumer products company will be a valuable addition as we continue to drive our business forward.”

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. regularly evaluates the composition of its board of directors to ensure that its directors possess the skills, experience and perspectives needed to guide the company and help deliver value to all stakeholders.

“I am honored to join Abercrombie & Fitch Co.’s Board of Directors. I was initially drawn to the company’s progressive nature, particularly in sustainability and diversity and inclusion,” said Robinson. “I look forward to working with Fran, Terry, and the rest of the board and the management team to support the company and its iconic global brands.”
