Ms. Alber commented, “Pat has devoted the past thirty-five years to building the company’s multi-channel strategy and has been a driving force in our e-commerce growth. In this role, Pat will combine his knowledge of the company, as well as the investment and venture communities to identify opportunities with significant potential that leverage our core competencies. Pat will also oversee all corporate communications, including continuing to partner with Chief Financial Officer Julie Whalen on investor relations activities. Mr. Connolly commented, “I am excited to work with our outstanding leadership team to identify and capitalize on opportunities that can further enhance shareholder value.”

Chief Information Officer John Strain has been promoted to the position of Chief Digital and Technology Officer.

Felix Carbullido has been promoted to the position of Chief Marketing Officer, succeeding Mr. Connolly and reporting to Mr. Strain. “Felix brings a broad range of experiences across merchandising, e-commerce, and executive management to this position.
