Glossier founder Emily Weiss is leaving the Allbirds board, according to a Wednesday filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. She will not stand for reelection at the company’s annual stockholders meeting, which takes place June 9, and her departure is effective as of that date.
Allbirds stressed that the departure was “not due to any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.” Weiss is currently a member of Allbirds’ sustainability, nomination and governance committee.
Weiss has been a member of Allbirds’ board since October 2020, according to the filing. At the time of her appointment, Allbirds also named Mandy Fields, chief financial officer of E.l.f. Beauty, to its board.
In addition to Fields and Weiss, the brand’s remaining board members include Allbirds co-CEOs Tim Brown and Joey Zwillinger; Dan Levitan, a managing partner at venture capital firm Maveron; Warby Parker co-CEO Neil Blumenthal; Nike veteran Ann Freeman; and former TPG Capital partner Dick Boyce.
Allbirds, which has struggled to reach profitability since going public, recently announced a strategic transformation plan that dramatically scales back store openings and prioritizes financial stability. At the same time, the brand also announced Chief Financial Officer Mike Bufano would step down, replaced by Adidas veteran and Gymshark exec Annie Mitchell.
