Canada Goose Appoints Gary Saage and Jennifer Davis to Board of Directors

Welcomes Marjan Anwar Khan as Chief Technology Officer

Canada Goose Holdings Inc. (NYSE, TSX: GOOS) today announced the appointments of Gary Saage, former Group Chief Financial Officer, Richemont, and Jennifer Davis, Partner, Bain Capital Private Equity, to the Canada Goose Board of Directors, effective immediately. Jennifer will replace Josh Bekenstein, who has made the decision to resign from the Board. Gary will also join the Audit Committee. At the same time, Canada Goose announced that Marjan Anwar Khan will join the company as Chief Technology Officer.

“As Canada Goose embarks on a new chapter of global growth, I couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Gary and Jennifer to the Board and Marjan to the role of CTO,” said Dani Reiss, Chairman and CEO, Canada Goose. “I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Josh for his outstanding service, leadership and contributions to Canada Goose since I met him in 2013. Josh remains an incredible mentor and good friend. Our newest board members will draw on their extensive knowledge and expertise in finance, luxury and retail to help our team to continue to execute against our strategic growth pillars, while Marjan will lead our technology transformation.”

Board of Directors:

Gary Saage has extensive experience in the luxury industry, most recently serving as Chief Financial Officer for the Richemont group based in Switzerland. In 1988, he joined Cartier in the U.S., and subsequently served as Chief Operating Officer of Richemont in North America and then as COO of Alfred Dunhill in London. In 2006, Gary joined Richemont as Group Deputy Finance Director and in 2010 was promoted to Chief Financial Officer. Gary has recently been nominated to the Board of Richemont and, if elected, to the role of Chairman of their Audit Committee.

“I’m honoured to join the Board of Directors at Canada Goose as it further cements its position as one of the world’s premier performance luxury brands. I look forward to supporting the talented leadership team as they execute on the brand’s strategic growth pillars,” said Gary.

Jennifer Davis is a seasoned executive with decades of experience in investment banking. She joined Bain Capital in 2022, where she is a Partner in the Consumer and Retail Vertical, and a member of the North American Private Equity team. Prior to joining Bain Capital, Jennifer spent nearly two decades at Goldman Sachs & Co. where her roster of clients included Birkenstock, L Brands, Ralph Lauren and PepsiCo. Jennifer is also a member of the Board of Directors of Bob’s Discount Furniture and The Opportunity Network and the Board of Trustees of Cornell University and was heavily involved in Canada Goose’s IPO during her time at Goldman Sachs.

“It’s truly a privilege to become a board member for Canada Goose, a brand that I’ve respected for a long time for its authenticity, unmatched product and commitment to sustainability. I was proud to have worked on Canada Goose’s IPO in 2017, and I’m thrilled to be able to work even more closely with the talented leadership team to contribute to driving business acceleration and growth in the global luxury market,” said Jennifer.

Leadership Team:

As Chief Technology Officer, Marjan Anwar Khan will lead Canada Goose’s technological evolution, including developing a system-wide architecture strategy, advancing digital strategy, implementing AI and automation practices, and fostering new business partnerships. Before joining Canada Goose, Marjan spent eight years at Restaurant Brands International where she led Tech Partner Success and the Project Management Office in her most recent role. She has also held senior roles at Tim Hortons and Deloitte.

“I’m very excited to join the Canada Goose team and help lead the brand on its digital transformation journey. I’ve always admired Canada Goose, truly one of Canada’s most well-known and beloved brands, as they have brought more of Canada to the world,” said Marjan. “I look forward to contributing to the company’s next phase of innovation and to see how far we can push the boundaries of technological capability and design in the evolving retail industry.”

Finally, Woody Blackford, Chief Product Officer is no longer with Canada Goose. The search for a new design lead, who will work closely with our existing product leadership team, commenced prior to his departure and is well underway. As well, Paul Cadman, APAC President, is no longer with the company. We thank Paul for his contributions during his time at Canada Goose. While we actively replace these roles, we remain confident in the strong leadership team at Canada Goose who will actively manage these areas in the interim.
