Hudson's Bay Co. on May 14 appointed Vanessa LeFebvre as president of its subsidiary Lord & Taylor, effective May 22.
The Toronto-based department store operator said LeFebvre will lead Lord & Taylor's efforts to revamp its regional department store model. She will report directly to Hudson's Bay CEO Helena Foulkes.
LeFebvre previously worked at California-based online retailer Stitch Fix Inc., where she was responsible for setting the strategy and merchandising direction of the women's segment.
The appointment comes nearly a week after the Canadian retail chain was reported to be exploring strategic measures to revive its Lord & Taylor department store chain.
