“I'm thrilled to join VF and have the opportunity to help lead the Timberland brand into the future. I've been both a fan and a consumer of the brand since moving to New England over 25 years ago. During that time, I’ve come to admire the brand not only for its great products, but also its clear commitment to environmental and social responsibility. I’m ready to roll up my sleeves alongside the global Timberland community and get to work”, added Susie Mulder.

The new President of the Timberland brand will partner closely with Martino Scabbia Guerrini, VF’s President of the EMEA Region, to manage this transition of leadership.
