Mr. Rubin brings more than 30 years of retail industry experience, including serving as President, Chief Executive Officer and member of the Board of Directors for Ulta Beauty (NASDAQ: ULTA), where since 2010, he successfully led his team in driving record revenue and earnings growth, as well as creating significant shareholder value for one of the largest beauty retailers in the United States.  He is a proven industry leader with a track record of results in marketing, merchandising, operations and strategy, having held executive leadership positions at a number of leading retail businesses including Office Depot, Sportmart and Federated Department Stores.  He also served as a partner in Accenture's retail consulting practice and was a member of the executive committee of the National Retail Federation from 2007 to 2010.

"Michaels is an iconic brand and a category leader in the large and fragmented arts and crafts industry, with considerable potential moving forward," said Mr. Rubin.  "With its diverse product offering of industry defining brands and unique customer engagement strategy, Michaels has built a loyal customer base.
