Scott Roe has been promoted to vice president, controller and chief accounting officer of VF Corp. He will also serve as a member of VF’s operating committee.
Roe succeeds Bradley Batten, who is retiring after 10 years with the Greensboro, N.C.-based apparel giant. He continues to report to Bob Shearer, senior vice president and chief financial officer of VF.
Roe joined VF in 1996 after serving as a senior auditor at Ernst & Young. He was vice president of finance and cfo of the company’s international business for six years prior to being promoted to vice president of finance last year, when he began to work with Batten on the transition in responsibilities and assumed financial oversight of the Jeanswear Americas and imagewear coalitions.
“Scott has played an important role in the evolution of our finance team,” Shearer said, “most recently in providing financial oversight of our international business during a period of exceptional growth.”
With 2012 revenues of $10.88 billion and net income of $1.09 billion, VF is the largest marketer of apparel in the U.S. Its brand portfolio is led by Wrangler, Lee, Timberland, The North Face and Vans, all of which have annual sales in excess of $1 billion.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
Azzedine Alaïa, flanked by two of his closest friends, models Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell.
He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
