Burberry has named Jan Heppe president of the Americas. She succeeds Eugenia Ulasewicz, who served in the role for 15 years. Ulasewicz will continue as a non-executive director of the Burberry Foundation.
As one of Burberry’s three global presidents (Europe, Asia, Americas), Heppe will oversee all sales channels, including online, for all global products in the Americas. The region, which accounts for 25 percent of Burberry’s global business covers the U.S., Canada and Latin America.
Heppe joined Burberry in 2001 as vice president of stores for Burberry USA. Since March 2010, she has been chief operating officer for the Americas. During her tenure, she has been instrumental in developing the Americas business and strategically aligning its global positioning across all channels.
