VF Corp. confirmed that Susie Mulder, global brand president at Timberland since April 2021, is departing the company. 

Nina Flood, VP/GM of Timberland EMEA, will assume the role of interim Timberland president.

Colin Wheeler, VP of corporate affairs and communications, VF Corp., shared with SGB Media, “After two and a half years as global brand president for Timberland, Susie Mulder has announced she will be leaving VF to pursue a new opportunity. Susie made many contributions during her time with the brand and leaves a strong foundation, strategy and leadership team to move the brand and business forward.”

“We’re pleased to announce that Nina Flood, currently VP/GM of Timberland EMEA, will assume interim leadership as global brand president. Nina has been a successful leader at VF for 20 years, within various leadership roles, including president, Global Packs before taking the helm at Timberland EMEA earlier this year,” concluded Wheeler.

In VF’s second quarter ended September 30, VF reported Timberland’s sales declined 10 percent on a currency-neutral basis, to $488.6 million. Growth in both EMEA and APAC was more than offset by softness in Americas wholesale. Results were affected by demand softness for six-inch boots, which negatively impacted both the wholesale order book conversion and DTC results. Outdoor and women’s continued to perform well.
