Burberry Promotes Andy Janowski To Chief Operations Officer – 5/2/10

Burberry said in a statement, “Janowski joined Burberry in 2006 as senior vice president supply chain, and created a global team that transformed purchasing, manufacturing, sourcing, and shipping, resulting in cost savings and reduced environmental impact and distribution processes.”
