“I am extremely proud of this Company and the incredible success it has achieved,” said Roger Farah. “Shepherding the growth and development of Ralph Lauren has been an incredible professional accomplishment, and I am very excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. We have made tremendous progress in recent years by expanding into new markets, growing our global luxury presence, improving our direct-to-consumer reach and innovating in new product categories, but there is more to do. This is the optimal structure to take the Company through the next phase of growth and to support the continued global expansion of the business.”
