TORONTO, March 4, 2021 /CNW/ - Roots ("Roots," "Roots Canada" or the "Company") (TSX: ROOT), a premium outdoor-lifestyle brand, today announced the appointment of Dexter Peart to its Board of Directors, effective immediately.

"Dexter is an accomplished entrepreneur, designer and visionary in Canadian fashion," said Erol Uzumeri, Chairman of the Roots Board of Directors. "Given his vast industry experience, especially in building globally-recognized, conscious-minded businesses and brands, he will bring invaluable insight and perspective. We are delighted to welcome him to the Board."

Dexter Peart is co-founder of leading sustainable design marketplace GOODEE, a B-Corp certified e-Commerce platform. His most recent endeavour, founded in May 2019 with his identical twin brother, Byron, GOODEE brings together the values of good design and good purpose across home, beauty and accessory brands. GOODEE was recently honoured as a finalist for Fast Company's "World Changing Ideas" 2020.  

"I am excited to join the Roots Board of Directors, having grown up with the brand," said Mr. Peart. "I look forward to helping continue to build on the Company's incredible achievements over the last nearly five decades."

Mr. Peart was named one of Fast Company's 100 Most Creative People in 2015, and he received the Accessory Designer of the Year Award in 2014 and 2016 at the Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards. He has also been included regularly amongst Business of Fashion's prestigious BoF 500 list. Mr. Peart began his career in fashion with the launch of WANT Agency in 2000, where he and his brother introduced many of-the-moment brands to the North American market. In 2007, they founded the critically-acclaimed accessories brand WANT Les Essentiels, which they followed with the multi-brand retail concept store WANT Apothecary in 2011. Mr. Peart is currently Vice Chairman of the Board of DESTA Black Youth Network
