Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Fran Horowitz takes you inside her successful leadership style.
Fran Horowitz took over the top job at Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) in 2017, following a tumultuous stretch for the retailer. Under Horowitz’s leadership, Abercrombie & Fitch has undergone a revival, not only reclaiming its cultural relevance, but delivering profits for investors in the process. While visiting the company’s new flagship store in New York City, Horowitz tells Yahoo Finance Executive Editor Brian Sozzi what it took to turn around the legacy retail brand. Horowitz describes the qualities that she says make her an effective leader, such as being authentic, having patience and admitting when she’s wrong. “Make a mistake. And when you make a mistake, just fix it and move on,” Horowitz says. Prior to leading Abercrombie & Fitch, Horowitz rose up the retail ranks at Express (EXPR), Loft, and Hollister, a brand owned by Abercrombie & Fitch.
