Lululemon appoints Clark new senior VP for Europe
Lululemon has a new Senior Vice President to lead the sportwear retailer’s EMEA region. Sarah Clark joins this week as the retailer “continues to grow and deliver on its next chapter of international expansion”.
Clark will lead brand and business growth via retail, digital and strategic partner channels across the EMEA region. Based in lululemon’s EMEA head office in London’s Covent Garden, she will lead a team of more than 900 across retail and store support functions across 43 stores and five local language sites in nine countries in Europe.
The brand recently opened its first stores in Spain, with international expansion “forming one of three key pillars in lululemon’s ‘Power of Three x2’ growth strategy”.
Prior to joining Lululemon, Clark held international commercial and marketing senior leadership roles at SMEs Frugi, OKA and Rapha, as well as gaining 14 years’ experience managing brands at Procter & Gamble.
“Sarah is a proven leader with a strong track record developing teams, deepening brand loyalty, and scaling businesses internationally,” said André Maestrini, Lululemon’s EVP of International.
“Her experience and vision will enable us to deliver on our EMEA ambitions, towards our five-year goal of quadrupling lululemon’s international revenues.”
Clark added: “[Lululemon is] a transformative brand rooted in world-class product, and in building unique guest experiences and engaged local communities. I was particularly attracted to the inclusive culture, unified behind a clear and powerful purpose.”
Lululemon’s previous SVP for EMEA, Gareth Pope, relocated to Hong Kong in 2021 to lead the brand’s Asia Pacific region.
