Juicy Couture is strengthening its retail ranks.
The company has tapped Michael Dadario as a retail consultant following the departure of Laura Mays, senior vice president, consumer direct, who has left the firm after six years. She is said to be joining another company, which has not been revealed.
Most recently, Dadario was president of Bare Escentuals. He also has his own consulting firm, M Dadario and Associates. Earlier, he was a senior vice president, retail at Williams-Sonoma Inc., and senior vice president, retail at West Elm. Before that, he was executive vice president, retail at J. Crew for two years, and executive vice president at Banana Republic for 10 years.
Dadario, who reports to Juicy president LeAnn Nealz, will serve as a consultant until a permanent replacement is named.
