Susan J. Kuhn, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Foot Locker Europe has been promoted to President of the EMEA region and General Manager of Foot Locker Europe.

Kuhn will oversee Foot Locker Europe and the label's daughter brand Sidestep, reporting to the company's newly appointed Chief Operating Officer Franklin Bracken.

She joined Foot Locker in February 2020 having held previous senior positions as Executive Director, Strategy & Business Development at Urban Outfitters and Vice President and General Manager, Digital and Direct Retail Converse China.

It was also announced that Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at Foot Locker Andrew Gray will expand his responsibilities leading the organisation's commercial area to fuel its growth strategy.

Foot Locker's Chairman and CEO Richard A. Johnson commented: "It's an exciting time at Foot Locker as we execute our strategic priorities. The addition of these key roles creates a more streamlined and agile organisational structure that builds on the success of our geo-focused growth strategy.

"I'm also pleased to share Frank's and Susie's new roles and recognise them for their contributions to Foot Locker. Susie is a global-minded leader, and she has proven to be an invaluable addition to Foot Locker as we have executed against our strategy across Europe. I look forward to continuing to work closely with these seasoned leaders as we advance Foot Locker's strategy and global growth agenda."

Earlier this month Foot Locker completed the acquisition of Japanese digitally-led retailer Atmos in a $360m deal in its continued efforts to expand its portfolio.
