Lands’ End names a new leader


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.
