Lands’ End announced it has named Michele Donnan-Martin as Executive Vice President, Chief Merchandising Design officer. Donnan-Martin will lead all aspects of merchandising and design for the brand to ensure alignment of product development, price point strategies and design aesthetic to embrace and further build upon Lands’ End’s rich heritage. Donnan-Martin will start on November 4, 2013, and report directly to Edgar Huber, CEO and President, Lands’ End.

“I am confident that Michele’s proven success in the retail industry will deliver the ideal combination of merchandising, product development and financial acumen that will further position Lands’ End for growth,” said Edgar Huber, CEO and president of Lands’ End.

“We look forward to adding a new member to the Lands’ End Leadership Team who will bring a wealth of brand-building knowledge and multi-channel retail and product development experience.”
