NEW YORK--After just six months on the job, Terry Mottoros resigned last week as senior vice president of Lillian Vernon, the catalog company based in New Rochelle, N.Y. Mottoros had a wide range of responsibilities covering merchandising, special projects, the wholesale division, outlets, incentives and corporate gifts. "Certain things were put off for a while, so I decided it was best to go sooner rather than later," Mottoros said Friday. "There were some changes in the direction there, and I really didn't feel I wanted to be there under the circumstances." She did not specify the changes. She reported to Lillian Vernon, chairman, whom she described as "terrific," adding, "she has built a great business." Her decision to leave was "mutually acceptable," Mottoros added. Officials at the $196 million catalog company could not be reached for comment. Prior to joining Vernon, Mottoros was president of merchandising for I. Magnin, a former division of R.H. Macy & Co. Mottoros, a 32-year veteran of Macy's, held several high-ranking positions there.Mottoros said she is considering some options in retailing and merchandising, but that her plans are not set yet.
