Target Corporation has appointed Michelle Wlazlo as senior vice president of apparel and accessories.

In this role, Wlazlo will be responsible for the retailer's merchandising programs for women's, men's and kids' apparel and accessories, as well as Target's baby business, according to a press release.

Wlazlo brings more than 25 years of diverse retail experience, nearly 19 of which she spent in various leadership positions at Gap Inc., where most recently she served as senior vice president of global merchandising, Gap. In that role, Wlazlo was responsible for the development of global brand and product assortment strategies across all apparel and accessories divisions, as well as leading the integration efforts of Gap's stores and digital buying teams. Prior to her time at Gap Inc., Wlazlo's background includes positions at Bebe and Saks Fifth Avenue.

The retailer has also hired Erika De Salvatore for the newly created role of vice president of visual merchandising. De Salvatore has more than 15 years of visual merchandising experience, serving most recently as vice president, visual merchandising, visual operations, international and flagship visual at Express. In her role at Target, De Salvatore will lead the development of visual strategies across the retailer's merchandising initiatives, with a focus on creating a compelling guest experience in Target stores nationwide.

Brian Cornell, chairman and chief executive officer, Target said, “Over the past year, we've made significant progress against our goal to make Target famous for our signature product categories, and our guests have responded favourably to the focus and innovation we've showcased. While I'm confident in our strategy and that we're on the right path, we're just at the beginning of our journey. I believe Michelle and Erika will significantly advance Target's efforts, in terms of our assortments and the overall experience we offer our guests. We're excited to welcome both of them to our Target team.” (GK)
