Abercrombie & Fitch Co. announced the appointment of Arturo Nuñez to its board of directors, effective November 7.
Nuñez is the founder and CEO of AIE Creative, a brand strategy and marketing firm. In addition to opening his own business, the executive was the chief marketing officer of Nu Holdings Ltd., a digital banking platform headquartered in Brazil, where he ran its global marketing efforts in Brazil, Mexico, and Colombia. He has also previously held leadership positions at Apple, Nike and the National Basketball Association, serving in marketing and general management roles across a number of markets. Nuñez currently serves on the board of directors for The Estée Lauder Companies Inc.
“We are pleased to welcome Arturo to Abercrombie & Fitch Co.’s board of directors. He brings decades of global business experience from top companies and brands, focused on connecting with and engaging customers around the world,” said Nigel Travis, chairperson of the board. “His expertise in marketing, branding, and retail innovation will be an asset to the Board and complement the company’s growth ambitions.”
Nuñez’s election takes the U.S. apparel brand’s board of directors number to ten.
“I’m excited to join Abercrombie & Fitch Co.’s board of directors,” said Nuñez.
“The company’s remarkable transformation in the retail industry, both in terms of business and culture, is nothing short of impressive. Collaborating with CEO Fran Horowitz, Nigel, the board and the management team, at this exciting juncture, is an opportunity I eagerly anticipate. I look forward to leveraging my global brand expertise to contribute to the company’s continued success,” he added.
The announcement comes just weeks after Abercrombie was hit with a group lawsuit alleging the retailer and its former chief executive, Michael Jeffries, had benefited from a sex trafficking operation led by Jeffries.
