NAM is not a priority? I find that hard to believe.

Big CUTS in the next 2 months, come March the buildings that were cleared out will continue to divest the campus.
What is to come is number reduction and decreased budgets for the next 4 year turnaround. The focus will be international sport and fashion a pure drifting away from american sports and culture. Cuts are coming and there is no works council to help USA employees remain in the brand. Kasper was famous for growing by cutting in his previous roles as well. NAM is not a priority as it was 6 years ago, NAM will be regional and not global priority and it will be a decade before there is a return to solidify the losses and direction of this brand. COVID19 will be partly blamed but leadership and the lack there of will be the result of misguided & mismanaged decisions for years to come. Just my opinion of course, 20+ years with the brand in all roles I've haven't seen things this gloomy for the extended period we are experiencing. Roles and people will change in the coming months, a nontraditional shift will come as a shock to most if you aren't prepared. Have a back up plan IMO, use your skillset and seek the anchor in your organization and have real conversations with them.
