“Since becoming CEO, I have had the opportunity to immerse myself in the Company, including leading an in-depth review of the brands and businesses. The review revealed attractive growth opportunities for Coach, Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman, which we will unlock by further leveraging each brand’s differentiated positioning and strong consumer connections, powered by a modern, agile Tapestry platform. Over the next several years, I will continue to work with our world-class teams to sharpen our focus on execution while driving our evolution to being a truly consumer-centric and data-driven organization, which will ensure we deliver on the full potential of our entire portfolio and enhance returns for all stakeholders,” said Jide Zeitlin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Tapestry, Inc.
