NEW YORK — Jerome Jessup has been named senior executive vice president for merchandise and design at Ann Taylor Stores. The announcement Wednesday confirmed a WWD report that day about Jessup joining Ann Taylor.
Jessup becomes the highest-ranking executive at the Ann Taylor Stores division of Ann Taylor Stores Corp. Previously, Ann Taylor said it would name a president for the division to replace Kim Roy, who left in January. Ann Taylor executives couldn’t be reached for comment on whether, with Jessup on board, they still are seeking a president for the division. But it appears that one won’t be named, at least for now, and that Jessup could ultimately wind up with the title if all goes well in his new post.

"I thought years ago that [Jaime] was going to bite the bullet. [The writers] knew who would be left standing, but they never told us so it was this constant guessing game," says @gameofthrones actor @nikolajwilliamcw.
