“As part of the board of directors’ ongoing succession planning process, we regularly look for exceptional talent that will complement our already strong board and help guide our company as we build on our solid position in the athletic industry, and Ulice and Kim fit that description perfectly,” said Richard A. Johnson, chairman of the board and CEO, Foot Locker Inc. “While they both have tremendously broad global leadership experience, Kim’s work in truly understanding individual customers and Ulice’s expertise in international trade and supply chain will make them especially valuable additions to our board.”
