Perry will be responsible for leading all aspects of VF’s Investor Relations program.

She was an Institutional Investor-ranked analyst with positions held at Lehman Brothers, Nomura International and Cantor Fitzgerald.
Perry transitioned to the corporate environment in 2014 when she was appointed to strategic planning and investor relations roles.
