Lifestyle Alliance promotes Neva Turi to Chief Customer Officer
Jul '08
Kellwood's Lifestyle Alliance announced the promotion of industry veteran Neva Turi to chief customer officer, according to Patrick J. Burns, group president.

Turi will be responsible for managing the Lifestyle Alliance's customer relationships through a combination of business analytics and active engagement to ensure the division meets the needs of its target consumers.

Turi most recently served as senior vice president merchandising and design; a post she has held since October 2007 when the Company established the Lifestyle Alliance division comprising its Sag Harbor, Koret and Briggs New York brands.

She joined the Company in 2000 as vice president sales and merchandising for Sag Harbor. In 2005, Turi was promoted to executive vice president merchandising and design for the brand. Prior to Kellwood, she spent 12 years with Liz Claiborne in various sales and merchandising management roles.

"Neva exemplifies true leadership and exceptional management skills. We look forward to benefiting from both her merchandising experience and extensive background in sales to help strengthen our presence in the women's market," said Burns.

"I am confident in Neva's selling skills and her ability to build relationships in the industry to ensure the Alliance's continued success."

Based in New York, Turi succeeds Stephen Powers as chief customer officer and reports to Burns. As previously announced, Stephen Powers is retiring from the company after a distinguished 30-year career in the apparel and retail industry.
