This week we announced that Chief Financial Officer Harmit Singh has been named Chief Financial and Growth Officer. As part of his expanded responsibilities, Harmit will take ownership of Corporate Strategy as well as Global Retail Real Estate, in addition to his current duties.
“I’m pleased to share that Harmit’s role is expanding to Chief Financial and Growth Officer,” said Chip Bergh, Chief Executive Officer at Levi Strauss & Co. “Harmit and I have had a great working relationship, and I cannot understate the role that he has played as my partner these last 10 years in turning the company around, taking it public, instilling financial discipline and driving accelerated, profitable growth. In this expanded role, Harmit will assume additional responsibilities for Strategy and Retail Real Estate. I’m certain with the expansion of his role, he will continue to be a key partner for me and President Michelle Gass in steering the company to our long-term goals.”
