Ralph Lauren appoints Kate Bartle to global communications role
Ralph Lauren this week announced more changes to its corporate team. Malcolm Carfrae, who was global head of communications, public relations and media since 2014, has recently resigned his post. On Monday, the company announced the appointment of Kate Bartle to senior director, global fashion public relations and communications.
Bartle heads to Ralph Lauren from Michael Kors where she served as communications director. She also served as global communications director for Belstaff and communications director for Diane von Furstenberg.
The appointment is one of many changes to the company’s management team, which began at the beginning of May. On May 5, the company announced that it had promoted Valerie Hermann to global brand president for luxury, women’s collections and world of accessories. The promotion led to the resignation of Christine Beauchamp, global brand president for Lauren, Chaps, American Living and Ralph, who left due to personal reasons, and Kim Roy, group president of wholesale, North America.
Bartle will report to Florinka Presenti, vice president, public relations, luxury collections, who assumed part of the responsibilities of Carfrae along with Ryan Lally, vice president of global corporate communications.
