In a move aimed at broadening the expertise of its members, the directors for off-price retailer Burlington Stores Inc. named Mary Ann Tocio, former president and chief operating officer of Bright Horizons Family Solutions Inc., to its board.
As a result, the board now has “nine members with significant experience across the financial, retail, marketing and consumer products sectors,” the retail said in its statement.
Tom Kingsbury, president, chief executive officer and chairman of the board, said Tocio has “strong leadership and operational experience,” which will be “very valuable to our company.”
Tocio retired from Bright Horizons in July 2015 after serving 23 years — most recently as president and chief operating officer. Prior to Bright Horizons Tocio served in several executive positions with Wellesley Medical Management Inc.
