Angela Ahrendts is an American businessperson. In her latest role, she oversaw the retail strategy of Silicon Valley design and technology company Apple. She was previously the former CEO of Burberry, the iconic British luxury brand.
While a member of its executive team as senior vice president of retail and online stores, Ahrendts earned over $70 million in 2014, more than any other executive at Apple, including CEO Tim Cook. As SVP of Retail and Online Stores, she was placed on the Apple Leadership roster, signaling her official entry into the company. On February 5th, 2019, Apple announced that Ahrendts would be leaving in April to be replaced by Deirdre O'Brien.
Before working with Apple, Ahrendts helped to transform Burberry, the global luxury company distinguished by its 155-year British heritage and iconic outerwear. Under her leadership, the company developed a pure brand strategy to focus on global growth. This plan was realized through international retail expansion as well as innovation in product design and digital marketing. Over the past five years, revenues have more than doubled and Burberry is now widely regarded as one of the leading British brands in the world, with a thriving, connected corporate culture.
Today, Burberry is ranked in the FTSE 50, with annual revenues of $2.5 billion. In 2011, Burberry was named the fourth fastest-growing brand in the world by both Interbrand and WPP/BrandZ, and the 13th most innovative company globally by Fast Company magazine. It has been recognized in Interbrand’s Top 100 Global Brands for the past three consecutive years, and was this year named Retailer of the Year at the Oracle World Retail Awards.
Angela is a member of the UK Prime Minister's Business Advisory Group. She was ranked 25th in Forbes' 2015 list of the most powerful women in the world, 9th most powerful woman in the U.K. in the BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour 100 Power List, and 29th in Fortune's 2014 list of the world's most powerful women in business.
Prior to joining Burberry Angela was executive vice president at Liz Claiborne Inc., where she joined the executive team in 1998. During her tenure, she oversaw the Contemporary, Casual, Bridge and Menswear businesses, comprising more than twenty brands and representing 40 percent of total company revenues. She previously spent six years as president of Donna Karan International.
Angela was born and raised in Indiana. She acquired her merchandising and marketing degree from Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana, from where she also received an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree in 2010.
