Ralph Lauren Corporation has announced that Darren Walker, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Ford Foundation has been nominated as an independent director for election at Ralph Lauren Corporation’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders for 2020.
Current Board of Director members, Joyce F. Brown and Robert C. Wright, on the other hand, will not stand for reelection after their service of 19 and 13 years, respectively.
“When I met Darren in the fall, his strength of character, diverse experience and deep passion for positively impacting the world were powerfully apparent – and I knew we could deeply benefit from his perspective on our Board,” said Ralph Lauren, Chairman & Chief Creative Officer.
“I have long admired Ralph and the Ralph Lauren Corporation, and I am deeply honoured to have the opportunity to join the Company’s Board of Directors,” said Walker.
“Ralph Lauren is an iconic, purpose-driven industry leader, and I welcome the opportunity to contribute to the Company’s continued success.”
