During his time on the Board, Gary has demonstrated proven leadership capabilities and a disciplined approach.

Ms. Sullivan concluded, “On behalf of Talbots and the Board of Directors, we would like to thank Tom Kajita for his dedicated service and significant contribution as Board Chair over the past year, and we are grateful that he will continue as an active member of our Board.”

Mr. Pfeiffer is also Chair of the Board's Executive Committee and the Company's Compensation Committee and has been an independent Director of the Company since 2004. Mr. Pfeiffer recently served as Secretary of Finance for the State of Delaware. He was Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company from 1997 through 2006, when he retired.
