Canada Goose Holdings Inc. announced that Jonathan Sinclair will succeed John Black as chief financial officer and executive vice president. He is expected to join the company toward the middle of the year.
Black has informed the company of his intention to retire and will continue as chief financial officer until Sinclair’s appointment, and will remain in a senior role until the end of year to ensure a smooth transition.
“Jonathan is an accomplished business leader and seasoned financial executive. His extensive experience with luxury brands and direct-to-consumer operations will be invaluable as we continue to bring more Canada Goose to the world,” said Dani Reiss, president and CEO. “I am extremely grateful for John Black’s contributions over the past four and a half years. He has played a pivotal role in leading our finance team through strong growth and many important milestones, including our initial public offering and the implementation of public company infrastructure and processes. We wish John all the best in his well-deserved upcoming retirement.”
Sinclair brings more than 20 years of global financial and operational experience to his role. He currently serves as the chief financial officer and executive vice president of business operations at Jimmy Choo, where he was instrumental in its initial public offering and strategic review process, which ultimately led to its sale to Michael Kors Holdings Limited. Prior to this role, Sinclair served as chief operating officer at Jimmy Choo and Vertu, and he has also held a number of financial leadership roles at companies, including Pentland Brands plc and The Boots Company PLC.
Sinclair commented: “Having worked and lived in London, the capital of the U.K., I have been privileged to work with the most exceptional talent. I am drawn to Canada Goose for the same reason–an exceptional team, as well as an amazing brand. Canada Goose has great potential for continued strong global growth and l am thrilled to join this talented and entrepreneurial team.”
“It has been a great honor to be a part of the incredible success at Canada Goose, and I am proud of the many accomplishments the company has achieved during my tenure. I look forward to working closely with Jonathan and supporting him throughout the transition,” said Black.
