David Suliteanu, CEO
“We are a unique mix of great brands and amazing talented people supported by a parent company, LVMH, which is incredibly supportive of us. We like to win. Our formula will allow us to do that for a long time.”
Sandy Saputo, CMO/SVP
“We have the best brand storytellers in the industry. Kendo-ites are big dreamers who obsess over the details of the journey—and you have to be a little ‘krazy’ to work in Kendo marketing.”
SVP Global General Manager
“We have big dreams and big visions, but with our entrepreneurial spirit and can-do attitude we make our dreams possible. We will continue to drive differentiated and authentic stories to support brand growth. And as we grow, our people and their careers will, too.”
Karen Cate, SVP CFO & Operations Management
“I love the fact that Kendo consists of five different and highly successful brands that are all very distinct. Each brand has a different strategy and customer base—the complexity and authenticity of the brands is what I find really exciting and challenging. I am continually inspired by the passion and caliber of the talent of the Kendo team!”
Kendo employees give back through volunteer time off and team building days, company donation matching, direct and in-kind charitable giving, as well as Kendo-sponsored shopping events that benefit a dedicated cause.
The company supports nonprofits in our communities through yearly grants. Each Kendo Brand also creates initiatives, products and/or campaigns to benefit causes that are important and authentic to our brand founders.
