Yoga apparel maker Lululemon Athletica Inc yesterday (19 February) said Michael Tattersfield, its executive vice president of retail logistics and sourcing, has resigned due to personal and family reasons.

Mr Tattersfield served as chief operating officer of Lululemon since joining the company in October 2006, until the role was split in January 2008.

He then focused on the leadership of the logistics and supply chain team, while Starbucks veteran Christine Day was hired to lead Canadian, US and international store operations, wholesale and phone sales, real estate development, and community relations.

Effective immediately, sourcing, production and logistics will report directly to Robert Meers, CEO of Lululemon Athletica.

Christine Day will continue to serve as executive vice president retail operations.
