Outdoor Voices taps Urban Outfitters president as new CEO

US activewear brand Outdoor Voices has tapped Urban Outfitters president
Gabrielle Conforti as its new CEO.

In her new position, Conforti is tasked with building on the company’s
current momentum, having recently become profitable, as well as focusing on
creating “exciting new products for customers, doubling down on the brand’s
Recreationalist community, and architecting the future vision for Outdoor
Voices”.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Outdoor Voices team. I have always
connected with the brand and believe in the strength of the company
mission: to be happy, enjoy life, and get moving! I look forward to
building on this solid foundation with focus on our community, the product,
and the journey of the brand,” said Conforti in a statement.

New CEO at Outdoor Voices

Conforti has more than 15 years of retail and apparel industry
experience in brand, merchandising, and consumer building, and spent the
past six years at Urban Outfitters, where she held senior management roles
including chief merchandising officer and president.

In those positions, she led the development and execution of brand
strategies and businesses, and helped launch and revitalize new category
businesses such as home, beauty, wellness and active from incubation to
customer-facing.

Prior to Urban Outfitters, Conforti worked at J.Crew where she oversaw
merchandising and buying across multiple categories.

“This is an exciting new chapter for Outdoor Voices and we are confident
that Gabrielle is the right leader to accelerate the company’s growth and
continue the positive trajectory. She is a passionate, innovative and
experienced executive and the perfect person to take Outdoor Voices to the
next level,” said chairman Ashley Merrill.

This comes after Outdoor Voices founder and former CEO Tyler Haney
stepped down from her position at the helm of the company last year to take
on a creative position.

Sportswear label Fila has unveiled a collaboration with birdwatching initiative Flock Together in the form of an apparel and footwear capsule, to be exclusively sold through LN-CC.

In a range of hike-wear gear made for urban exploring, the collection intends to bring people into nature and engage with their community. The selection includes a reinvented version of the Fila Trailblazer hiking shoe and two shearling fleece designs.

The colourways of the line are inspired by the Kingfisher bird, with a scannable near field communication (NFC) tag present in the hiking shoe that takes buyers to a dedicated page outlining the best places in the UK to spot a Kingfisher.

15 percent of all sales of the collection will go towards the Flock Together community fund.

Buying and creative director at LN-CC, Reece Crisp, expressed his enthusiasm over the collaboration in a release, stating: “We’re super excited for LN-CC to be part of this project.

“Flock Together encompasses everything that’s great about community and wellness, two driving forces that are integral to LN-CC too.

“Flock Together’s growth has been both a reaction to, and antidote from, a difficult eighteen months by bringing people together and encouraging outdoor consciousness, so we are honoured to share our platform in amplifying its much-needed positivity while working with Fila in creating this tribute to the Kingfisher.”

Flock Together, founded back in the 2020 covid-19 lockdowns, brings BIPOC together to engage in birdwatching and other nature-oriented activities.

It has previously partnered on an event with Timberland, hosting a range of spoken word presentations at the nature reserve, Woodbury Wetlands. Sponsored by the apparel label, the event aimed to promote the voices in its growing community adjacent to guiding guests through the nature reserve.
