Ralph Lauren Corporation named on Friday Deb Cupp, president of Microsoft North America, as a director for election at the company’s 2022 annual meeting of stockholders.
The company also revealed that at the annual meeting, taking place on August 4, 2022, Judith McHale, who has served on the Ralph Lauren board of directors since 2001, will not stand for reelection after her term, which is set to expire in August.
“I have always been inspired by people who have a passion for what they do, and Deb has demonstrated that in all of her roles,” said Ralph Lauren, executive chairman and chief creative officer.
“As we continue to build on the many strengths of our board, I know that she will bring this passion and special expertise as we build the story of our future. I would like to thank Judith for her many years of leadership and her dedication to the board and our company.”
Cupp has been with Microsoft since 2018 and was most recently named president of Microsoft North America, earlier this year. She has equally held positions as president of Microsoft United States and corporate vice president of enterprise and commercial industries. She also serves as a member of the board of directors of the IT consulting and services company Avanade.
Prior to joining Microsoft, Cupp spent six years at SAP, serving most recently as the senior vice president and managing director of success factors for North America. In this position, she was responsible for leading the HR business by driving sales and go-to-market strategies, as well as overseeing operations for the field sales organization.
“Ralph Lauren has been a leader in American fashion for decades, and their focus on digital acceleration to remain an industry leader is inspiring. I am very proud to join the Board of Directors and look forward to being part of this iconic company’s next great chapter,” added Cupp.
