Canadian yogawear retailer Lululemon Athletica, which is still without a CEO, has named former VF Corp executive Patrick (PJ) Guido as chief financial officer.

Guido, who will join the business on 30 April, will assume responsibility for the accounting, financial planning and analysis, tax, international finance, investor relations, and treasury functions. He will report to Lululemon's COO Stuart Haselden.

"With an impressive track record at major retail and consumer companies, PJ has deep experience guiding businesses during periods of substantial economic expansion," says Haselden. "Our momentum remains strong and we're thrilled to have PJ join the team and look forward to his important contributions."

Guido most recently served as treasurer and vice president of corporate development at US apparel giant VF Corp, managing capital allocation strategies, mitigating global financial risk, and executing on multiple strategic initiatives for the company. He has also previously held roles at The Home Depot and Saks Incorporated.

"I'm excited to join a brand with such a loyal following and so many untapped opportunities ahead," he says. "I look forward to supporting Stuart and the team in delivering on the company's strategic goals and realising the full global potential of Lululemon."

The retailer posted fourth-quarter net sales that outperformed expectations in March, just a month after the sudden departure of CEO Laurent Potdevin amid allegations of misconduct.
