Columbia director steps down
Sarah Bany, daughter of Gert Boyle and a longtime director of Columbia has resigned from the Board, with immediate effect, in order to focus on administering Boyle’s estate.
“It has been my great honour to serve as a director of Columbia Sportswear since 1988,” said Bany. “However, as I am now responsible for administering my mother’s estate, I feel that I should step away from the Board so that I can fully dedicate myself to that responsibility.”
“We thank Ms. Bany for her many years of service to the Company,” said President, CEO and director Tim Boyle. “She has been a valuable member of the Board whose service will be missed. We fully understand her desire to focus on matters related to Gert’s estate.”
Bany is a daughter of erstwhile Columbia president Gert Boyle and a sister of Tim Boyle. Gert Boyle passed away last month, aged 95.
