6 Retailers Banking on a New CEO in 2012

American Eagle Outfitters

American Eagle Outfitters (AEO - Get Report) named Robert Hanson as CEO in November to succeed Jim O'Donnell who will retire in January.

Hanson, who most recently served at the global president of Levi's, will assume the role on Jan. 30.

O'Donnell has led American Eagle since November 2003. After being appointed to the post, shares of American Eagle surged 182%, hitting an all-time high in January 2007. Since reaching that high, however, the stock has tumbled 58% and shares are about flat for the year-to-date period.

Amid the recession, American Eagle struggled to remain competitive against deep price cuts from rivals like Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) and was plagued by merchandise misses. In the first half of 2011, the teen retailer was hurt by weak sales, but has seen a bit of a turnaround in the past two quarters.
