HBC hires Vanessa LeFebvre as president of Lord & Taylor
Hudson’s Bay Company has appointed Vanessa LeFebvre as president of the Lord & Taylor department store brand.
In her new role, LeFebvre will lead Lord & Taylor’s transformation of its regional department store model.
Helena Foulkes, HBC chief executive, said: “Vanessa is a change agent with a track record of conceptualising and building new lines of business. This, combined with her strong experience leading digitally-focused strategies and understanding of department store retailing, makes her the right person to lead Lord & Taylor into the future.”
LeFebvre has joined HBC from online retailer Stitch Fix where she was responsible for setting strategy and merchandising direction for the women’s category. Other previous positions include senior roles at retailers such as Macy’s, TJX Companies and Daffy’s. At Macy’s, LeFebvre was the principal architect of Macy’s Backstage division, which she built into a multi-concept operation, including store within store concepts.
LeFebvre is not a newcomer to Lord & Taylor as she spent the first 10 years of her career as a buyer and DMM at the chain.
She will take up her new position on 22 May and will report directly to Foulkes.
