Gordmans Stores, Inc., an Omaha-based apparel and home decor retailer, announces two leadership appointments: Amy Starr Myers has joined Gordmans' executive leadership team as senior vice president of marketing; Stacey M. Townsend will launch the company's eCommerce business as vice president and general manager of eCommerce.
 
Myers most recently was vice president of marketing and creative services at Things Remembered, the nation's largest and most prominent retailer of personalized gifts. During her eight-year tenure at Things Remembered, she introduced the retailer to hundreds of new malls through strategic growth initiatives that delivered positive comp store sales and increased brand recognition, resulting in bottom-line growth. 
 
Myers also led the international expansion of the company into Canada. Prior to Things Remembered, Myers served in marketing positions at Shop At Home TV and Kraft Foods. She also spent six years at Spiegel, Inc., where she managed the statistics, circulation and promotions departments. Myers has a master's degree in Economics from Indiana University-Purdue University, and a B.S. degree in Economics from Indiana University.
 
"As Gordmans continues to increase its footprint across the country, Amy brings experience of growing a national retail presence. Her analytical, test-based approach will help drive Gordmans' growth," said T. Scott King, interim CEO and Chairman of the Board for Gordmans. 
 
Townsend joins Gordmans from Interline Brands, a $1.6 billion direct marketer and distributor of broad-line maintenance, repair and operations products. As director of eCommerce, she led Interline's B2B eCommerce business.
 
Townsend has served in a variety of eCommerce roles including vice president, eCommerce at Hancock Fabrics; director of eCommerce merchandising and operations at Oriental Trading Company; director of Internet operations, The Bombay Company; director of merchandising and business operations for KB Toys; and web operations manager for Egghead.com.
 
"Stacey brings a broad-based background in eCommerce supporting merchandising, operations, merchandise planning, production and inventory control. She is a talented and well-rounded eCommerce executive who will help us launch eCommerce as an additional channel to serve our guests," said King.
