I eagerly anticipate my collaboration with the Board and executive team to solidify and expand Worldly’s robust market standing in the forthcoming chapter, ensuring we provide unparalleled intelligence and insights to our customers promptly and on a global scale.”
Jason Kibbey, the founding CEO, will work with Raskin to transition leadership accountabilities over the summer before taking up a new position as Founder and President based in Paris. With compliance requirements and stakeholder demand for greater supply chain and product impact transparency both increasing rapidly, driven predominantly by the EU, Kibbey’s deep expertise in fashion industry sustainability will support Worldly’s mission to enable better-informed decisions right across consumer goods value chains, beginning with apparel, footwear and textiles.
“As the fashion industry’s most comprehensive primary data source, Worldly can play a critical role in enabling accelerated action towards more sustainable practices,” said Kibbey. “We are committed to working with our customers and also regulators and stakeholders to support both compliance with any new requirements and deeper understanding of the role of data as an enabler of change. I am excited to support Scott’s vision for Worldly as the leading technology solution in this dynamic market.”
