VF Corporation is changing its management structure to suit changes in the way it does business, notably the grouping of all brands into dual portfolios. Core Brands comprises Vans, The North Face (TNF) and Timberland. Doug Palladini and Steve Murray have become global brand presidents of Vans and TNF, respectively. Murray served as president of Vans from 2004, the year VF acquired the brand, to 2009, when he became president of VF’s Action Sports Coalition. He has also been vice president of apparel at Reebok, brand president at Urban Outfitters, president for EMEA at Deckers Outdoor, chief executive of Airwair International (Dr. Martens) and, most recently, group president for the U.S. and the Americas at VF. The company has now done away with that last post. Murray is replacing Arne Arens, who has left the company. Timberland still lacks a permanent global brand president and for now has retained Scabbia Guerrini as its leader. VF’s remaining brands have been grouped into the Emerging Brands portfolio, for which Kevin Bailey has become president. Bailey also has charge of Asia-Pacific. He was president of Vans from 2009 to 2016. All global brand presidents, along with the leaders of VF’s enterprise functions, report directly to the chairman, president and chief executive, Steve Rendle.
