Feb '08
lululemon athletica inc announced that Michael Tattersfield has resigned as Executive Vice President, Retail Logistics and Sourcing due to personal and family reasons.

Mr. Tattersfield served as Chief Operating Officer of lululemon since joining the company in October 2006. In January 2008, due to the rapid growth of the company, the role was split with Mr. Tattersfield focusing on the leadership of the logistics and supply chain team.

Christine Day, a 20 year veteran of Starbucks, was hired to bring her extensive expertise in high growth retail operations to lead the areas of Canadian, US and International store operations, wholesale and phone sales, real estate development, and community relations.

Effective immediately, sourcing, production and logistics will report directly to Robert Meers, CEO of lululemon athletica. Christine Day will continue to serve in her position as Executive Vice President Retail Operations.

Mr. Meers, CEO of lululemon commented, “Mike Tattersfield was instrumental in leading lululemon through the impressive growth of 27 stores throughout 2007 and playing a key role in identifying and hiring many of our senior management team. We are very appreciative of Mike's contributions and wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Mr. Meers continued, “We are fortunate to have a strong team in place and fully operational. With the addition of Christine Day, who as head of retail operations has already made significant contributions to the company, along with our skilled executives in sourcing, logistics and production in place, I feel confident that there will be no disruption to our business and that we will continue to seamlessly execute on our growth plans.”
