"A proven merchant with significant experience in the specialty sector, Avra brings a deep knowledge in Women's apparel having been a member of the team that founded Club Monaco and developed and implemented the strategic initiatives that grew the brand to international recognition," said Paula Bennett, President of J. Jill.

"We are thrilled to welcome Avra to the J. Jill team as she will be instrumental in our continued efforts to improve the product offerings to our customers. Her experience will be invaluable as we elevate the look and feel of the stores and build greater awareness of the J. Jill brand."

Ms. Myers, 51, held a number of key leadership roles including Vice President of Merchandising and New Business Development responsible for all product lines and licensing partners during her 21-year tenure at Club Monaco, which was acquired by Polo Ralph Lauren in 1999.

Most recently, Ms. Myers was President and General Merchandising Manager for Limited Stores, a division of Limited Brands Inc, where she spearheaded the effort to redefine the brand throughout the Limited Stores organization from the design concept to the customer store experience.

"I have a great respect for the J. Jill brand and believe there is a tremendous opportunity for future growth," said Ms. Myers. "I look forward to working with Paula and the J. Jill team in repositioning the brand and driving improved performance."

A native of Canada, Ms. Myers attended Sheridan College of Crafts & Design. In her new role, Ms. Myers will be based in Hingham and will report directly to Paula Bennett, President of the J. Jill brand.
