“We are pleased to be able to recognize Liyuan Woo’s talent, accomplishments and strategic financial skills by promoting her to the CFO role”
As CFO, Ms. Woo will succeed Walter J. Parks, Chief Operating Officer (“COO”) and Chief Financial Officer, who is departing the Company effective May 3, 2013. The Chief Operating Officer position will be eliminated and CEO Steve Birkhold will assume the COO responsibilities. The Company said that the change in management responsibilities reflected the desire for a flatter, more streamlined organizational structure to quickly advance the vision for the future of the bebe brand.
“We are pleased to be able to recognize Liyuan Woo’s talent, accomplishments and strategic financial skills by promoting her to the CFO role,” said Mr. Birkhold. “We are also grateful to Walter Parks for his many contributions to bebe during the past ten years, and for his assistance over the four months since I joined the Company in helping to facilitate the transition and position bebe for a new level of success.”
Prior to joining bebe, Ms. Woo held a Senior Manager position with the accounting firm Deloitte & Touche, LLP in its Mergers and Acquisitions Transaction Services Group. In that role, she advised private equity firms and strategic buyers in a variety of industries on mergers and acquisitions, capital structure analysis and recapitalizations, leveraged buyouts, financial due diligence and transaction modeling.
