NEW YORK — Celia Clancy has been named president and chief executive officer of Ashley Stewart, a large-size chain with 187 stores. She succeeds Laura Weil, who resigned to pursue other interests, the company said.
Clancy said her previous experience at A.J. Wright and Wal-Mart should serve her well as she positions Ashley Stewart for growth. The retailer began catering to plus-size customers with sexy, fashion-forward styles in the early Nineties.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
