fresh face friday – meet wynn

Winds of fantastic change are blowing through Store Development with the hire of our new VP, Wynn. He comes to lululemon with over 25 years of real estate experience, from companies such as Shoppers Drug Mart, Starbucks and Priszm Brands (KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell). We know he is going to do some great things with the team and with our stores!

Welcome to the lululemon team Wynn!

what is something unique or surprising about you?

I completed the market mapping of Amsterdam for Starbucks on bicycle as part of a four month European assignment. I rode around Amsterdam for 5 days straight 10 to 12 hours per day. It was a great experience and a test of endurance.

what is one of your biggest passions (outside of store development!)?

My wife, nieces and nephews and playing hockey. I married my high school grad date so we are like soul mates. She also puts up with my other passion – store development, which trust me requires a lot of understanding.

favourite place in the world?

Paris, France. There was so much history and the Louvre museum was awesome.

a goal you've achieved that you're proud of?

Completion of my first yoga class - a Bikram hot yoga class! I survived and am ready for another one. My goal is to now attend at least one hot yoga class per week.

what do you want to be remembered for?

Having fun and sharing what I love – development and being part of a great team.

Wynn, welcome to it, and what can you do about the lack of inventory in the online store? Check the men’s pants, shorts — the most popular sizes are out of stock and have been for weeks. Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback, Porter! We’ll use this to help with inventory for our online store in the future, particularly the men’s pants and shorts. Have you tried calling the Guest Education Centre? We can always check our phone sale inventory for the item your looking for if you can’t find what you need online. 1.877.263.9300 option #2

Thanks for the info and phone number on the GEC. I’ll try it later.

I also just discovered LLL for men through my daughter. Unfortunately the sizes and selection online AND at the local stores in my area are slim. I purchased over $500 of tops and shorts for my daughter but found very little in my size. I was looking for a Form Jacket in xxl and called all over So Ca. with no luck. I don’t want to but may have to go in a different direction for my workout stuff if the supply chain can’t keep up with demand. Great stuff though.

Wynn’s a great guy – I’ve known him for years and is a very good addition to your organization – please have him contact me or pass this along to him.
