US: Wet Seal SVP store operations resigns
US teen apparel retailer The Wet Seal has announced the resignation of Barbara Cook, its senior vice president of store operations, after less than two years in the post.
The California-based retailer said Cook has accepted a new "professional opportunity".
CEO John Goodman said: "We thank Barbara for her service to the company since joining us in late 2011 and wish her all the best in her new role."
The news comes after Wet Seal parted company with its president and COO Ken Seipel last week along with 35 other employees as it begins to implement a number of cost-saving initiatives.
The COO position has now been eliminated, with Goodman assuming direct leadership over store operations, e-commerce and construction. CFO Steve Benrubi is leading information technology and real estate.
US retailer The Wet Seal has appointed Lesli Gilbert as EVP, stores and operations. ...
Improved merchandise margins have helped The Wet Seal return to profit during the first quarter, with the teen apparel retailer remaining optimistic in its outlook....
