Five months into his tenure as president and chief executive officer of Levi Strauss & Co., Chip Bergh is starting to put his organizational imprint on the $4.76 billion denim and sportswear giant.
The San Francisco-based firm Wednesday promoted Anne Rohosy and Aaron Boey, the presidents of its global Dockers and Denizen brands, respectively, to new posts as presidents for commercial operations across all brands. Rohosy is responsible for the Americas and Europe and will relinquish the presidency of Dockers upon the appointment of a successor. Boey, with responsibility for Asia-Pacific, will retain the title of president of Denizen, Levi’s newest and smallest brand. Both retain the title of corporate executive vice president and continue to report to Bergh.
