Wolverine Worldwide announced the promotion of Gillian Meek to President of Keds, effective from the 12th of September onwards
As Keds continues to celebrate their 100th anniversary with the Ladies First campaign, Meek's appointment is an important organizational move that “adds to the company's brand leadership, underscores the depth and talent of the management team and demonstrates the Keds brand's commitment to female empowerment”.
