Tapestry is saddened by the loss of our long-time Board Member Sir Ivan Menezes, who passed away after a brief illness. Mr. Menezes joined the Coach, Inc. Board in February 2005 and for nearly 20 years, made indelible contributions to Tapestry’s transformation through his international experience, strategic insight and leadership with consumer companies.
“Ivan’s career impacted and inspired generations of colleagues and consumers alike around the world. His business acumen in addition to his passion for sustainability and building an equitable, inclusive and diverse world made him an admirable leader, and we are honored to have worked alongside him on the Tapestry board over the last eighteen years,” said Joanne Crevoiserat, Chief Executive Officer and Anne Gates, Board Chair, of Tapestry, Inc. “On behalf of our entire organization and Board of Directors, we wish to extend our deepest condolences and sympathies to Ivan’s family and friends.”
Mr. Menezes served in several executive leadership roles at Diageo plc, a premium drinks company, most recently as Executive Director and Chief Executive. Prior to that, he held senior marketing positions with Whirlpool Europe and was a principal with the strategy and technology consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton, Inc., both in Chicago and in London.
