NEW YORK — Polo Ralph Lauren Corp. promoted Susie McCabe to president of Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Stores.
She replaces Ken Pilot, who left his post as president of Factory Stores and retail concept development at Polo last February to join American Eagle Outfitters as president of its as-yet-unnamed new retail division.
McCabe joined the company as divisional planning director in 1997. In 2001, she rose to vice president of merchandise planning and distribution for the Factory Stores division. Two years later, she became vice president of business planning and development for Polo’s Retail Group. Earlier, McCabe was vice president of Factory Outlets, Europe.
In her new role, she will oversee Polo’s 144 Factory Stores worldwide, reporting to Jeff Sherman, president and chief operating officer of the Polo Retail Group.
