San Francisco — Gap Inc. has appointed Nancy Green as the president and CEO of Old Navy, the company’s largest brand. Green will report to Sonia Syngal, CEO of Gap Inc., and will serve on the company’s senior leadership team. Green has served as interim head of Old Navy since March and was previously president and chief creative officer of the brand.
“Nancy is a visionary leader who brings deep customer empathy to her role every day. She has led the brand through one of the most challenging periods in its 26-year history, and the team has delivered strong results through compelling creative and product execution,” says Syngal. “Under Nancy’s purpose-led leadership, the brand has grown a formidable billion-dollar Active and Fleece business, launched new omnichannel experiences, and doubled down on Old Navy’s promise to welcome everyone through fun, fashion, family and value. I look forward to watching her and the team further grow the brand and its social impact at a time when it matters most.”
Prior to joining Old Navy in August 2019, Green served as president and CEO of Athleta where she helped grow the brand from $250 million to a nearly $1 billion purpose-led business for active women and girls. In 2018, Nancy was instrumental in Athleta becoming the first apparel company of its size and scale to achieve B Corp Certification. During her career with Gap Inc., Green has also held multiple roles in the Old Navy brand, including the early growth years of the brand and again from 2010 to 2012 when she led product, design and visual merchandising. Beyond Gap Inc., Green has served as CEO of Shabby Chic, where she partnered with the founder to create a vision and growth strategy for a multi-channel lifestyle brand.
