Away luggage has appointed Catherine Dunleavy, the brand’s previous chief financial officer, to president.

“I’m incredibly proud of the work that the entire Away team has accomplished since I joined the company two years ago. I’m honored that Jen and the Board have given me their confidence to drive greater impact in this new role. Away’s continued growth amid tumultuous macroenvironments coupled with our impressive brand affinity highlight just how beloved Away remains, despite external factors impacting retail and travel industries,” said Dunleavy.

As the president, Dunleavy is expected to oversee Away’s strategy, operations and supply chain efforts, as well as digital product, legal, and finance initiatives as the company looks to accelerate its recovery and strategic growth plans.

Dunleavy originally joined the company in October 2020 and has been most recognized for her efforts in navigating the challenges brought upon by the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, she helped position the luggage company to effectively capitalize on the return to travel.

“In her two years with Away, Catherine has provided clear strategic vision, unlocked growth opportunities, and showcased her deep understanding of our business and our customer,” said Jen Rubio, CEO of Away. “Catherine has become an incredibly trusted voice, advisor, and leader, and I’m personally thrilled to continue our work together as she steps into this new role.”

Dunleavy’s appointment is effective immediately.
