Which Retail CEO Should Be Fired in 2012: Poll

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - It's that time of year when retailers start assessing the success of upper management, weeding out the unsuccessful leaders.

In the past few weeks we have seen several shakeups at the top, most recently with Talbots (TLB) and Avon (AVP) searching for new CEOs.

These struggling companies are looking to start the New Year with a manager that can revive brand image, give the company a foothold in the growing e-commerce, mobile and social world and figure out how to effectively operate traditional brick-and-mortar locations.

But there are still a number of other retailers that should consider ousting their CEOs in 2012.

Here's a roundup of some of the worst retail CEOs of the year.

Cast your vote at the end of the story for which you think should be fired and leave comments below if you think we left out a CEO who should be on the list.
