FILA are getting with the times by appointing their North American sector’s first ever female president.
Following the untimely passing Jon Epstein, the man who signed Grant Hill, Jennifer Estabrook has taken the stateside helm.
FILA’s chairman, Gene Yoon, has said that ‘Estabrook was the steady hand the FILA North America family turned to without hesitation as we faced the shock and profound sadness of Jon Epstein’s death. In the weeks since, our formal review has confirmed what Jon himself knew and said often: That Jennifer has the industry savvy, financial and operational command, and passion for the brand to guide FILA to its next stage of disciplined, high-octane global growth.’
FILA’s Disruptor was recently embraced by women everywhere, and it’s likely Estabrook’s appointment will continue to show the sneakersphere that the future is female.
