Ralph Lauren Corporation To Create An Office Of The Chairman

Ralph Lauren Corporation (NYSE:RL) (the “Company”) today announced plans to introduce changes to its leadership team and to create an Office of the Chairman, led by Ralph Lauren, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Company, and including Roger Farah, Jackwyn Nemerov and Christopher Peterson. Roger Farah, currently President and Chief Operating Officer (COO), will become Executive Vice Chairman. Jackwyn Nemerov, currently Executive Vice President (EVP), will become President and COO. Christopher Peterson, currently Senior Vice President (SVP) and Chief Financial Officer (CFO), will become Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) in addition to his role as CFO. The Office of the Chairman is being created to enhance the Company’s ability to support the growth of the business in an increasingly complex global environment and capitalize on new business opportunities. Mr. Farah, Ms. Nemerov and Mr. Peterson will report directly to Mr. Lauren. The changes will be effective as of November 1, 2013, allowing for a smooth transition period.

“This is the right team to take this Company forward and the right time to be making these changes,” said Ralph Lauren. “I chose Jacki and Chris to work alongside me because their outstanding leadership skills, unrelenting focus on performance and broad, global experience will improve our ability to take advantage of the tremendous opportunities ahead. Jacki is a deeply experienced merchant and business leader, with profound knowledge of all facets of this Company and brand. Chris is a world-class executive who has impressed me immensely with his ability to rapidly assimilate into Ralph Lauren and command the respect of the organization. They will work with Roger and me as partners to shape the future of the Company.

“Over the past thirteen years, Roger has played a critical role in driving the Company forward and has presided over an unprecedented era of growth and accomplishment,” added Mr. Lauren. “His leadership, strategic guidance and friendship have been invaluable to me and the entire Company, and his impact on the Company has been extraordinary. Roger’s transition to Executive Vice Chairman will allow him to focus more specifically on business development and strategic initiatives while Jacki and Chris work with me to run the day-to-day business.”
