Nordstrom announces executive leadership appointments
Nordstrom has made a series of executive leadership appointments across its merchandising and store operations.
Jamie Nordstrom has been appointed chief merchandising officer after previously serving as the company’s chief stores officer. He has succeeded Teri Bariquit who retired earlier this year. In his new role, he will continue to serve as a member of the company’s executive team and will report to Pete Nordstrom, president and chief brand officer of Nordstrom.
Pete Nordstrom said: “Our merchandising organisation is the backbone of Nordstrom, and our teams are exceptional at providing best-in-class service and a relevant, inspiring product offering for our customers.
“Jamie has experience working across nearly every aspect of our business and has held broad-based leadership roles in merchandising, stores and digital over the span of his twenty-eight-year career with the company. We’re confident Jamie’s proven track record and experience will bring us even closer to our customers as he leads our merchandising organisation into the future.”
Meanwhile, Fanya Chandler has been appointed as president, Nordstrom stores. She has held several leadership positions during her 32 year career with Nordstrom, and most recently served as senior vice president and regional manager of the company’s Southwest region.
In a further move Gemma Lionello has been appointed to the newly created role of president, Nordstrom Rack, a role in which she will oversee the strategy and execution of the company’s Nordstrom Rack stores. This will involve expanding the Rack’s reach and convenience with new stores in key markets.
Throughout her 35-year tenure with the company, Lionello has served in numerous executive positions, including general merchandise manager, and spent 11 years working within the retailer’s Nordstrom Rack business. She most recently worked as senior vice president and regional manager of the company’s Northeast region.
Both Chandler and Lionello will join the company’s executive team and will report to Pete Nordstrom.
Nordstrom said: “We’re fortunate to have such exceptional leaders in Fanya and Gemma to help us continue to drive our Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack businesses forward, and these changes leverage their tremendous talent.”
