Lord & Taylor president and chief executive officer Brendan Hoffman has left the company amid a restructuring and top management shift that elevates Bonnie Brooks to president of the Canadian parent, the Hudson’s Bay Co.
Hoffman appears to be headed to The Bon-Ton Stores Inc., the struggling York, Pa.-based regional department store chain, as ceo. He could not be reached for comment Monday, but sources said an announcement of his appointment could be imminent.
In her new role as president of the $4 billion Hudson’s Bay Co., Brooks, formerly president and ceo of The Bay division, will oversee the merchandise, marketing and store operations of L&T and The Bay. She succeeds Hoffman at L&T.
