“This is something I’ve been thinking about for quite some time,” Chabot said Monday. “I’m actually talking to some folks about projects and consulting work, and we’ll see where it will lead.”
Chabot joined the store not long after she graduated from college. She started as an assistant to the senior vice president of marketing, rose to advertising manager, director of advertising, assistant to then-fashion director Ellin Saltzman, vice president of marketing, and eventually her current post.
Chabot has been reporting to Sheri Wilson-Gray, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, and has been responsible for media, advertising, direct marketing, and sales promotion. A successor was not named.
