Spanx, Inc. announced that Jan Singer has been named Chief Executive Officer of the company. Singer will report to Sara Blakely, the founder and owner of the company. Gregg Ribatt, the Interim CEO, will assist Singer through a transition, and then continue to serve on the company’s Board of Advisors. Singer is expected to join the company officially in early July.
 
Singer is a highly regarded and well-respected leader in the apparel and footwear industry. She joins Spanx from Nike, where she held various senior leadership roles including Corporate Vice President of Global Apparel and Corporate Vice President of Global Footwear. Prior to that, Singer served as the Vice President and General Manager of Reebok’s women’s business and played key marketing and global communications roles for Chanel, Calvin Klein, and Prada. Singer also previously served as the Beauty and Fitness editor for YM Magazine.
 
“Spanx is first and foremost an innovator and leader,” said Sara Blakely. “Jan’s role in helping to lead and innovate at premium, global brands across the apparel, footwear and beauty industries, combined with her deep understanding of the consumer, make her the perfect fit for Spanx. I’m confident that she will transition from the locker room to the fitting room seamlessly. I am grateful to Gregg Ribatt for his role in leading the company through this transition and setting us up for the next phase of growth.”
 
“Spanx is an incredible brand with unique and powerful consumer connections, and I’m excited to join such a dynamic company,” said Singer. “My background and experience position me to build on the great foundation created by Sara and her team, and I look forward to leading the organization on its continued path of success.”
 
About Spanx
Spanx founder Sara Blakely was getting ready for a party when she realized she didn't have the right undergarment to provide a blemish-free look under white pants. Armed with scissors and sheer genius, she cut the feet off her control top pantyhose and the Spanx revolution began! In addition to the first footless pantyhose, Spanx is responsible for countless other industry-changing inventions including the first-ever shaper short with no leg band, the revolutionary shaping camisole, control-top fishnet pantyhose and the first back-smoothing bra, the Bra-llelujah!
