US: Hoffman to lead merchandising at The Finish Line
US sportswear retailer The Finish Line has appointed Scott Hoffman as chief merchandising officer and executive vice president.
"This appointment is about more than recognising how much our company has grown. It also signals our whole-hearted commitment to aggressively growing our business," said Sam Sato, president of the Finish Line brand, which operates 638 stores in the US.
Hoffman most recently served as managing director for women's apparel business Echo Design Group. He previously worked at US clothing chain Steve & Barry's and casual clothing firm Brooks Brothers and AX Armani Exchange.
Finish Line has announced a raft of appointments in the last month, including Harvey Bierman as vice president of digital technology, Amber Vanes as vice president of planning and allocation and Jeffrey Sherry as vice president of business development and corporate strategy.
