Eddie Borgo named Jessica Kates as the brand’s first chief executive officer.
The appointment coincides with the company’s fifth anniversary and hints toward Borgo’s plans for expansion. A graduate of the Harvard Business School, Kates began working at the company in June 2012 as chief financial officer and chief operating officer following stints as vice president of finance at Folica and M&A manager at VF Corp. “She just moved into the daily lifestyle of our company so well,” said Borgo.
