Canada Goose names new chief human resources officer
Canada Goose announced on Tuesday the appointment of Jess Johannson as chief human resources officer.
The Toronto-based company said that in this role, Johannson will be responsible for the company’s human resources strategy. She will equally oversee all global teams across HR, including talent acquisition, employee experience, training and global policy.
“For over 20 years, Jess has led HR teams across a diverse group of industries and has left her mark on the teams she has worked with,” said Dani Reiss, chairman and CEO, Canada Goose.
“Her passion lies in flexibility, agility, innovation, and transformation – which I know will fit in seamlessly with the people and culture at Canada Goose. I am confident that she will be an incredible asset as we continue to grow and expand globally, bringing more of Canada Goose to the world.”
Johannson most recently served as chief people officer at Tucows, an internet services and telecommunications company. Prior to this role, she held related positions across industries such as Capgemini, Brookfield Renewable Energy Group, Johnson Controls and Business Development Bank of Canada.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join the Canada Goose team – a brand I’ve greatly admired for its authenticity and deeply rooted heritage,” said Johannson. “I’ve always been motivated by out-of-the-box strategies that create engaging and impactful workplace experiences and can’t wait to contribute to a company like Canada Goose, who is undergoing such positive growth and transformation.”
The announcement comes as Canada Goose continues its retail expansion. Earlier this month, the outerwear brand announced the opening of four more retail locations across the United States. The locations add to its six other U.S locations in New York, Boston, Chicago, Short Hills, NJ, and the Costa Mesa store.
Recently, the brand released second-quarter earnings results announcing total revenue increased by 19% to $277 million, due to continued strong performance in North America and wholesale.
