The list, announced July 20, recognizes leaders who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in the workplace and community. The four associates named to the list are:

  • Bryan Chapman, Sales Director, VF Jeanswear
  • Deepak Gupta, Director of Operations, VF Sportswear
  • Jenni Broyles, Director of Marketing, VF Jeanswear
  • Sudarshana Bhattacharyya, Senior Manager-Direct to Consumer Operations & S&OP, VF Sportswear

“At VF, the success of our business is driven by the diversity of our workforce,” said Anita Graham, Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer. “When our associates bring their unique experiences, perspectives and skill sets to their roles, our entire company thrives. I’m proud of the four VF associates honored with this recognition.”

Nominees on the Top 100 Under 50 list must have earned an advanced degree from an accredited university and must hold a manager or leadership position. The 100 individuals picked for this year’s list were selected from a pool of 282 nominees.

The recognition is divided into two lists: Emerging Leaders and Executive Leaders. All four VF honorees were included on the list of Emerging Leaders. An Emerging Leader is a manager who reports to a vice president or a director.

A selection committee creates the list based on several criteria, including the nominee’s position within his or her company, his or her time in the position, his or her contributions to the community and the advanced degree that he or she holds.

The four VF associates and 96 others named to the list will be featured in the fall issue of Diversity MBA Magazine. The group will also be honored — and receive their official awards — during Diversity MBA’s Annual Business Leaders Conference & Awards Gala in Sept. 14-15 in Lisle, Illinois.
