Lands' End, Inc (NYSE: LE) today announced that Jeffrey A. Jones has joined the company as chief operating officer, a new position. He will report directly to Dave Dyer, president and chief executive officer.

Prior to joining Lands' End, Jones spent the last seven years with Shopko Stores, Inc, and its subsidiary, Provantage Health Service, Inc, both in Wisconsin. He served as Shopko's senior vice president and chief financial officer until 1997. At that time, he was named chief operating officer and later served as chief executive officer of Provantage, which was recently sold to Merck, Inc.

Chip Orum, executive vice president and chief financial officer, has announced his plan to retire in early spring 2001, in line with his long-time plan to pursue personal and family interests. "Chip has been a strong contributor to our growth and success for almost 10 years, and we wish him the best. With Jeff on board effective immediately, and Chip with us for the next few months, we have sufficient time for a smooth transition," said Dyer.

Orum joined Lands' End as vice president and chief financial officer in 1991. He was promoted to senior vice president in 1992 and named executive vice president in 1994.
