Her strategic and operational expertise have been instrumental in developing the company’s expansion and brand. In her new role, these focus areas will be integral to our company’s growth during this transformational time in our business.”

In addition, Ana Siegel has been elevated to executive VP and general counsel and Amanda Calpin, chief financial officer; and Ashaki Rucker, senior VP of human resources, will now report directly to Ferrari.
