"The promotion of John, Julie and Carol further evolves our senior leadership team as part of our overall organizational restructuring process," said Ms. Sullivan. "Each of them has demonstrated strong leadership skills in key areas that are critical to Talbots growth and success, and I am confident they will remain invaluable assets as we continue to execute on our three-year strategic plan.

With a strong, seasoned executive team now fully in place, and operational initiatives successfully underway, we are well-positioned to drive profitable growth, deliver shareholder value and build on our legacy as the retail destination for the 35+ customer."
