In yet another big change at Sears Holdings Corp., John D. Goodman, executive vice president of apparel and home, has left the company.
Goodman joined Sears Holdings in November 2009 and had been leading efforts to clean up and focus the merchandising at the Sears and Kmart divisions and redirect the appeal to younger, trendier customers with junior and contemporary styles.
On Jan. 3, Ron Boire, the former Brookstone president and chief executive officer, was named executive vice president, chief merchandising officer and president, Sears and Kmart formats. Two days later, Goodman, a 22-year veteran of retailing, was out. On Wednesday, the company confirmed Goodman’s departure.
In addition, the apparel team at Sears Holdings includes Lana Cain Krauter, president of Sears apparel and senior vp of Sears Holdings, and Tara Poseley, president Kmart Apparel and senior vp Sears Holdings. There are also two chief marketing officers: Sheila Field at Sears Apparel, and Robin Creen at Kmart Apparel.
