VF Corp. is getting a new technology leader.
Martin Schneider, the company’s VP and CIO will retire at the end of 2017. Sandra Harris, VP, global business technology, will succeed Schneider as VP and CIO, effective Jan. 1, 2018. Harris also has been appointed to VF’s senior leadership team.
Schneider has led VF’s global business technology organization for more than 11 years, “a period of tremendous business growth for VF and transformational change in retail through the rise of e-commerce and mobile shopping,” said Scott Roe, VP and CFO. “He and his teams successfully managed numerous large-scale projects that enabled VF and our brands to navigate rapid technological changes, while also ensuring that our associates have the tools and resources to work anywhere in the world.”
Harris is an eight-year veteran of VF, and previously served as VP and CFO, global supply chain, shared services, and direct-to-consumer for VF. She has deep and diverse finance and business experience, and has been a key member of VF’s global business technology leadership team, according to VF.
Harris will work closely with Schneider throughout the rest of 2017 to ensure the successful transition of responsibilities.
