In a surprising high-level reorganization, the Toronto-based Hudson’s Bay Co. is expected to soon unveil new roles for Bonnie Brooks and Liz Rodbell that will take effect at the beginning of 2014.
Sources said Brooks, currently president of the Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor divisions, will become vice chairman of the parent Hudson’s Bay Co. The gregarious Brooks has been very visible in the fashion markets and in the stores, but will be assuming a more strategic, lower-profile advisory role working with chief executive officer Richard Baker. “She’ll be working closer with Richard on long-term growth strategies,” said one source.
