“We conducted an in-depth search and determined that Mr Bracken had all the attributes needed to excel in this role. He is a transformative and visionary business leader with a proven track record in a wide range of industries,” says Richard Carrucci, chairman of the board, who has also been confirmed in his role. Throughout his career, he has demonstrated an exceptional ability to improve design capabilities, win over consumers and accelerate sales growth and margin expansion.”

Clearly, the board of directors of the American group was looking for a profile capable of reorganising the group, whose margins have been eroded in recent years, before moving forward again.

“He succeeded in turning the company around by opening it up to new categories and improving its market share by introducing new and innovative products and by elevating design to be a pillar of the company’s strategy. Under Darrell’s leadership, Logitech has expanded into more than 20 new product categories, more than doubled its turnover and increased its market capitalisation tenfold,” says the VF Board, clearly eager to see the leader apply his expertise.
