Nordstrom bolsters leadership for Rack division
U.S. department store Nordstrom announced on Tuesday the appointment of three retail executives to its Rack division, as the retailer homes in on merchandising and supply chain operations across its off-price network.
The Seattle-based Nordstrom said it has recruited Nancy Mair as senior vice president, Rack merchandising, and Stacy Lippa as vice president, Rack supply chain. Nordstrom said it has also promoted Kelley Wotton-Gantner to vice president, divisional merchandise manager, effective immediately.
In her new role, Mair will help develop and execute the Rack merchandise strategy across both Nordstrom Rack stores and NordstromRack.com. She previously worked at Burlington Stores for 26 years, where she began as an intern and ultimately served as SVP/GMM of multiple merchandising areas, before starting her own consultancy.
Formerly Nordstrom's senior director, merchandising, Wotton-Gantner's new role will see the off-price retail veteran tasked with leading a broader scope of buying for Nordstrom Rack. Prior to Nordstrom, she held leadership roles at a variety of off-price retailers including Macy’s Backstage, Beall’s Inc., TJX Companies and Bob’s Stores.
Lippa joins Nordstrom with 19 years of experience, most recently leading the distribution and fulfillment networks at Five Below. Before that, Stacy spent 17 years at Target in various leadership roles across imports, transportation, replenishment, distribution and food supply chains. In her role at Nordstrom, the executive will be tasked with driving store growth by aligning stakeholders and resources to support Rack supply chain needs.
The appointments come at a time where Nordstrom Rack looks to expand and improve product offerings, by sourcing from new vendors and creating a more efficient and optimized supply chain network, according to a press release.
“Nancy, Kelley and Stacy each bring extensive off-price retail experience to important areas of our Rack business, and we’re thrilled to welcome them to the team,” said Geevy Thomas, president, Nordstrom Rack.
“Their collective expertise in driving off-price growth and transformation will help us drive continued improvement, achieve our goals and deliver the best possible experience for our customers from product selection through delivery.”
