Just two weeks ago, Mogil, a former Phillips-Van Heusen Corp. executive, took over the ceo duties from Mark Hoffman, who retired. Mogil will lead the 469-door chain in a time of considerable flux.
Patti Shields, executive vice president and general merchandising manager, also resigned effective Aug. 14. Kara Stangl and Jennifer Mitchell, each of whom was a vice president, were both promoted to senior vice president of merchandising and will together direct the chain’s merchandising until a permanent replacement for Shields is found.
In addition, Edward Wong, executive vice president and chief supply chain officer, was named chief operating officer. Zina Rabinovich was promoted to senior vice president from vice president. She remains corporate controller.
