Destination Maternity, the world's largest designer and retailer of maternity apparel, has appointed Peter Longo, former president of Macy's Logistics/Operations, to its board of directors. Following the announcement, the board will consist of 5 members who have significant professional experience, particularly in retail, e-commerce, marketing and finance.

"As a board, we have been actively evaluating our composition and size.  Following significant study and engagement with stockholders, we decided to recruit individuals who possess diverse skills and experience, to help further the company's turnaround and drive long term profitable growth. With this in mind, we are pleased to welcome Longo to the Destination Maternity Board," said Barry Erdos, chairman of Destination Maternity.

"We believe Longo's strong operational and e-commerce background bring important capabilities and wisdom that will be highly valuable to the company as it implements the strategies that are expected to position the company for success. We also believe the addition of Longo to our board will further build upon the strength and expertise of our current members and is aligned with our strategy to drive shareholder value," concluded Erdos.

Since 2000, Longo was leading the business plan development and implementation for the logistics and technology infrastructure to support Macy's e-commerce efforts as well as its transition to omni-channel involving the analytics, operations, and systems for a flexible fulfillment network. Longo has also served as co-chair of Voluntary Industry Collaboration & Solutions and served on the board of governors for GS1-US and GS1-Global. (RR)
