Lands’ End names a new leader

The Times-Tribune - - Business -

Strug­gling re­tailer Lands’ End Inc. on Mon­day named a new CEO to suc­ceed Fed­er­ica Mar­chionni, the New York ex­ec­u­tive who tried — not particular­ly suc­cess­fully — to steer the Wis­con­sin firm onto a more-fash­ion­able course.

Now poised to take the reins at the cloth­ing com­pany best known for its tra­di­tional, but­ton-down styling is Jerome Griffith, a mul­ti­lin­gual, Har­ley-David­son-rid­ing re­tail vet­eran who most re­cently was pres­i­dent and CEO at up­scale lug­gage mer­chant Tumi Hold­ings.

He will as­sume his new po­si­tion in March and will join the Lands’ End board of di­rec­tors.
