Caleres is adding female media and marketing power to its board of directors. The footwear company announced Tuesday the election of Wenda Harris Millard and Brenda Freeman to its board of directors.
The Women’s Forum of New York has recognized Caleres for the percentage of women on its board. With the addition of Freeman and Millard, the Caleres board now has more than 50 percent of its board seats held by women.
“How we best serve our customers has undergone a sea change over the last five years and it continues to rapidly evolve every day,” said Diane Sullivan, Caleres CEO, president and chairman. “Brenda and Wenda’s expertise around emerging consumer technology and trends will greatly benefit us as we continuously look to newer, faster and more creative ways to reach the customer with the shoes and brands they want—when, where and how they want them.”
