DALLAS — The Dallas Market Center Co. has named Jane Robertson senior vice president of marketing and has promoted others within her department.

Robertson succeeds Lori Edelman, who resigned to pursue other interests. Edelman joined the DMC five years ago as vice president of hard goods marketing.

Robertson, formerly senior vice president of marketing communications, now adds responsibilities for retail development, special events, international development and database management. She joined the company last year as a consultant for the opening of FashionCenterDallas. She reports to Cindy Morris, chief operating officer.

Cole Daugherty, who was senior director of public relations, has succeeded Robertson in overseeing advertising and exhibitor communications, as well as public relations. The DMC also named Alden Clanahan as vice president of visual merchandising, where he will remain in charge of displays and events throughout the wholesale complex. Clanahan has been with the DMC for four years, most recently as senior director of visual merchandising.

Marie Connors was promoted to senior director of soft goods retail development, in charge of bringing new buyers to market. Connors has been with the DMC for five years. Daugherty, Clanahan and Connors report to Robertson.

In addition, the DMC picked Robbie Armstrong for the new position of vice president of event administration, reporting to Mitzi Tally, executive vice president of administrative services. Armstrong has been with the DMC for 12 years, most recently as senior director of complex sales and services.

“These leaders have demonstrated excellent marketing skills and have proven to be key assets to the company,” said Bill Winsor, president and chief executive officer of the DMC.
