As a sign of its commitment to bring on additional creative and product talent at the company, Gap Inc announced the appointment of two global apparel industry leaders: Jill Stanton in a newly-created role as creative advisor for Old Navy and Liz Meltzer as Senior Vice President of Gap International Merchandising.

“Boosting our already-strong creative talent is a key focus in 2012,” said Glenn Murphy, Chairman and CEO of Gap Inc. “On the heels of Tracy Gardner coming back to Gap, we are thrilled that Jill Stanton will bring her talent and proven business experience as creative advisor to Old Navy to help us deliver consistently great product.”

Stanton will serve as a creative advisor to Old Navy, and will work with the design and merchandising teams to provide a fresh perspective and insights to the brand. Her career spans more than 25 years in apparel retail, starting with successful global retailers Next and Marks and Spencer.

She has more than a decade of experience with Nike, ultimately serving as vice president of Global Apparel. In that role, she was responsible for the strategic direction of all functional areas associated with product design, production, and development of Nike Apparel globally.

Meltzer will oversee Gap's international merchandising in Asia, Europe, and other key regions outside of North America as a key member of the Gap Global Creative Center in New York. She has more than 20 years of diverse product experience across multiple brands, countries and channels. She's served as Uniqlo's senior vice president of merchandising for the United States and Europe, and held senior-level merchandising positions at J.Crew and Calvin Klein.

“Liz Meltzer brings her proven track record in global merchandising to our Gap Global Creative Center in New York, with a deep understanding of customer needs in the geographies that present the largest opportunity for us going forward,” Murphy said.

Stephen Sunnucks, president of the company's International division, added, “Liz offers a rare mix of experience with both an understanding of our deeply iconic American brand and expertise in global markets having worked hands-on with marquee brands in Asia and Europe.”
