Zalando adds to SVP leadership team with trio of key appointments
Europe-focused online fashion retail giant Zalando has strengthened its leadership team and appointed three senior vice-presidents, including two internal promotions and one crucial newly-established role.
Bruno Vanhoorickx will join Zalando as SVP Corporate Development on March 1, directly reporting to co-CEO Rubin Ritter. He currently works for Bain Capital in London.
The newly-established role really highlights how such companies see themselves driving growth in future — he will be responsible for identifying, preparing and executing disruptive moves that will help Zalando “deliver on the existing platform strategy and beyond.”
Ritter added: “He will help us to explore new opportunities and new horizons for growth.”
Meanwhile, Anne Pascual is promoted to SVP Product Design. In her new role, she is responsible for “translating the Zalando Group strategy into an inspiring, uniting and leading digital experience.”
CTO Jim Freeman said of the appointment: “With Anne, we are looking forward to next-level digital experience solutions that make a difference to our customers and create memorable moments.”
Astrid Arndt is also promoted to SVP People & Organisation. In her new position, she is responsible for further shaping Zalando's culture and people management.
“Astrid will further develop our organisation and help us find and retain the right talent,” said co-CEO Robert Gentz.
