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.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
