Liz Claiborne Inc. announced that Lisa Piovano Machacek has been appointed Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, effective immediately. Ms. Piovano Machacek will report directly to William L. McComb, Chief Executive Officer, Liz Claiborne Inc. and is responsible for all Human Resources functions across the company.

Commenting on the announcement, Mr. McComb said: "I am thrilled that Lisa will be leading Human Resources. Lisa is a long time Liz Claiborne Inc. associate with roots in product development and has a profound understanding of the fashion business. She also has deep connections with and respect from our associates and business leaders, and the essential functional expertise in building high performance cultures and teams and managing complex change. She will play an integral role in the next phase of our five-year turnaround."

Ms. Piovano Machacek joined Liz Claiborne Inc. in 1988 as an assistant in product development for the Liz Claiborne brand. In 1996, she was asked to join a three-year business transformation project ultimately responsible for the development and implementation of SEWN, a proprietary supply chain technology that impacted all aspects of the business. From that initiative, she transitioned into Human Resources in 1999 to serve as an HR Generalist for the Dana Buchman brand. Since then she has held a variety of Human Resources positions across the company, including most recently Vice President of Human Resources for Partnered Brands.

Ms. Piovano Machacek replaces Beth Reeves, who left Liz Claiborne Inc. in May 2009.
