The Board of Directors of The Finish Line, Inc announced that 30-year retail veteran Richard P. Crystal has been elected as a new Director.

Crystal, 64, is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of women's clothing retailer New York & Company. He joined the organization in 1996 as President and Chief Executive Officer of what was then Lerner New York. In 2002, Lerner New York became a privately held organization and became known as New York & Company. During his tenure, Crystal continued to lead the organization as its President and Chief Executive Officer, and in 2004, New York & Company became a public company with Crystal as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

Earlier in his career, Crystal was with R.H. Macy/Federated for 20 years, where he served in a variety of senior management positions, culminating in his appointment as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Product Development and Specialty Retail (Aeropostale, Inc.). He began his career with Stern's Department Store, based in New York City.

"With his deep expertise in retail and obvious executive leadership capabilities, we look forward to benefiting from Richard's contributions and insights into our business," said Finish Line Board Chairman Alan Cohen.

"Finish Line is a powerful brand with a premium positioning that offers a strong foundation for the future," said Crystal. "I'm pleased to join the Board and look forward to working with management to continue to strengthen the company."
