Kevin Wills, chief financial officer of Tapestry Inc., said Tuesday that he will depart the company to pursue another opportunity.
To ensure a smooth transition, Wills is expected to stay through Feb. 8 and the company will begin a search for his successor with Spencer Stuart.
Wills has been cfo of Tapestry since February 2017. He was responsible for all finance functions, global inventory management, corporate real estate and facilities.
“During his tenure as cfo, Kevin has played an important role as a key member of our leadership team, and we wish him the best of luck as he embarks on his next chapter,” said Victor Luis, chief executive officer of Tapestry Inc. “I am confident that we will find a strong successor to lead our seasoned finance team and that they will not miss a beat during the transition period.”
Wills, who is joining an undisclosed private company outside the industry, added, “It has been an honor and privilege to be a part of the successful acquisition of Kate Spade and the establishment of Tapestry. I am confident in the foundation that we have built and the significant opportunities for our brands,” he said. “Looking ahead, I am excited about being closer to my family.”
