lululemon is a vertically integrated retailer and is the world’s premier high-end ‘athleisure’ brand. It operates 400+ stores globally and has a significant eCommerce and mobile presence. As the Interim CIO reporting to the CEO, I led the technology group and all global operations for the company. This included stabilizing the technology organization, successfully taking the company through the 2016 / 2017 peak Christmas season and providing executive team guidance in all things technology. During my one year tenure, I established executive relationships across the globe and integrated with a relatively new digital organization. I redefined the technology organization to be more business focused, yet delivered non-stop changes and new technologies, globally. As a member of the executive committee, I focused on delivering strategic major new technologies that included supply chain, PLM, assortment management, data management, security enhancements, and team mentoring. Recruited a permanent CTO and transitioned responsibilities over the course of several months.
