US: Uniqlo strengthens US team with COO appointment
Japanese casual clothing retailer Uniqlo has appointed former Forever 21 executive vice president Lawrence Meyer as chief operating officer of its US division.
Meyer will report to Nobuo Domae, CEO of Uniqlo US and senior executive group officer of parent company Fast Retailing.
"Larry's addition to the Uniqlo US leadership team is a further indication of the global organisation's commitment to the important US market," said Fast Retailing chairman, president and CEO Tadashi Yanai.
Prior to Forever 21, Meyer served as CFO of children's wear retailer Gymboree. He also spent 14 years at PepsiCo in various integral roles.
As part of the management change, Shin Odake and Yasunobu Kyogoku, who were both instrumental in introducing Uniqlo to the US market, will now lead the East and West Coasts respectively.
