We are confident that Chris's talent, experience, creativity and energy will help us continue to drive improved sales performance and help us achieve our mission of becoming an even stronger global leader in the maternity apparel business."

"I am thrilled to join the talented management team at Destination Maternity and to continue the Company's mission of showing women that they can feel and look beautiful during this special time in their lives," said Chris Daniel."Under Ed's leadership, Destination Maternity has made great progress and I look forward to working with Ed and the rest of the team to continue that progress and create an even more special experience for our maternity apparel customer. Although already the leader in its business, Destination Maternity still has tremendous unrealized potential and I look forward to helping the Company realize this potential."
