11 Apr Fila Appoints Jennifer Estabrook President, North America
Fila appointed Jennifer Estabrook, chief operating officer, as North America president.
She succeeds Jon Epstein, who passed away suddenly in February a week after heart surgery. She had most recently been serving as acting president of Fila North America.
“Jennifer has the industry savvy, financial and operational command, and passion for the brand to guide Fila to its next stage of disciplined, high-octane global growth,” Fila’s chairman Gene Yoon said in a statement.
She has been COO since January 2016. Her COO role included integrating North American operations, leveraging shared assets to increase sales, marketing and sourcing efficiencies, and driving initiatives to strengthen the company’s global supply chain and U.S. fulfillment operations.
Previously, she held a dual role as Fila North America’s Executive Vice President, Business Operations and the head of Fila’s global licensing business. She joined Fila in 2005 as VP legal/global general counsel.
