Stern spent the majority of her career at Gap holding leadership roles.

“Erin brings extraordinary strategic, branding and merchandising capabilities that will complement our current leadership team,” said Gary Muto, president and chief executive officer of ascena Brands. “I’ve known Erin from our work together at ascena, but also when our career paths crossed at Gap. She is an extremely talented leader with a passion for product, brand and our customer.”

Prior to naming her as president of dressbarn, Stern served as EVP-Chief Merchandising Officer for maurices. Stern received a BA degree in Sociology from Tulane University in New Orleans.

“It’s always energising to promote from within, especially with a candidate who has Erin’s drive, tenacity and product expertise,” said David Jaffe, chairman and chief executive officer of the Ascena retail group.

“I’m excited to work alongside this talented team. The combination of this brand’s strong history, combined with its niche in the market, make us uniquely positioned to play a more meaningful role in our customer’s lives,” said Stern. (SV)
