The Power List: ROBERT HANSON
By Out.com Editors
CEO, American Eagle Outfitters, 49
After 23 years at Levi’s, former global president Hanson was recruited to lead American Eagle Outfitters in 2011. This March, however, AEO posted a 41% loss in net income from the previous year. To make up for this downward trend, Hanson announced plans to overhaul the massive teen retailer, ramping up e-commerce efforts and growing their outlet-store offerings.
