LOS ANGELES — Metropark, the southern California–based specialty chain that has quickly expanded into a nationwide streetwear destination, has tapped Renee Bell to be its new CEO.
Bell, 45, has served as vice-president and GMM of the company since 2005. She replaces Robert Allison, who has held the top spot on an interim basis since April. Allison remains on the board of directors, as does cofounder and chairman Orv Madden, who was CEO prior to Allison.
