Angela Ahrendts’s Profession & Career

Ahrendts moved to New York City to pursue a fashion career. Ahrendts joined Donna Karan International in 1989 after working in merchandising at bra manufacturer Warnaco. She worked to grow the premium brand internationally through wholesale and licensing. Leslie Wexner hired her in 1996 to expand Henri Bendel stores into 50 new markets, but the initiative was canceled by the board of directors two years later.

Ahrendts was hired by Burberry in January 2006, and she took over as CEO on July 1, 2006, succeeding Rose Marie Bravo. Ahrendts responded to the brand’s reputation erosion by immediately limiting the amount of Burberry check-patterned apparel and accessories to 10%, reducing the sales harm caused by widespread counterfeiting.

She also oversaw the buyback of the brand’s fragrance and beauty product licenses, as well as the buyout of the Spanish franchise, which was generating 20% of the group’s income at the time, to end the brand’s unrestricted licensing. According to Ahrendts, she did not model her approach after any other fashion brand, but rather sought inspiration from world-class design, including Apple Inc.

On October 15th, 2013, it was announced that Ahrendts would be leaving Burberry in the spring of 2014 to join Apple Inc. as senior vice president of retail and online stores, filling the position left vacant by John Browett in October 2012. Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s new Senior Vice President of Retail and Online Stores, joined the Apple Leadership team on May 1, 2014, marking her official start at the company.

According to Apple’s 2015 Proxy Statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Ahrendts earned more than $70 million in 2014 than any other Apple executive, including CEO Tim Cook. As of August 2016, she was said to own approximately US$11 million in Apple stock.

As a non-executive director, Ahrendts sits on the boards of Save the Children, Ralph Lauren Corporation, Airbnb, and Charity: Water. As of July 1, 2020, she will be a non-executive director on the board of WPP plc, the world’s largest advertising firm.
