About PVH Corp.
PVH is one of the most admired fashion and lifestyle companies in the world. We power brands that drive fashion forward - for good. Our brand portfolio includes the iconicCALVIN KLEIN and TOMMY HILFIGER brands. We market a variety of goods under these and other nationally and internationally known owned and licensed brands.

The Team
At PVH we are transforming the fashion industry by breaking conventions, exploring ways to push boundaries to deliver fashion for good and constantly accelerating the pace in which we do business. The world we live and work in is constantly changing. Right now, the pace and ambition of that change needs businesses like ours to fundamentally rethink what it means to be sustainable, equitable, inclusive and innovative. That is why the Sustainable Business and Innovation team exists. To drive transformation through sustainability, innovation, circular business, inclusion and diversity, and strategy. To raise the bar within our industry. To make our business ready and relevant for the future. This seemingly impossible reality is within reach if we're unafraid to grab it. The role of the innovation team is to unlock the ideas and actions required to shape the future of PVH and the fashion industry as a whole. This involves the development and creation of new materials and products, digitalization of the value chain, new (digital) consumer offerings and breakthrough business models. We need ambitious and creative people to help us on our journey.
