Chico’s FAS, Inc, a cultivator of brands serving the lifestyle needs of fashion-savvy women, has appointed Kim Roy to the company’s board of directors as a new independent director. With Roy’s addition, the company’s board now comprises nine directors, eight of whom are independent and five of whom are women. Roy will serve on the audit committee.

Roy received her bachelor of science degree in business from Skidmore College and serves on its board of trustees. She has more than 30 years of experience leading iconic American brands at Ralph Lauren Corporation, Ann Taylor Inc and Liz Claiborne, Inc across wholesale, retail and digital channels, according to a press release by Chico’s FAS.

Most recently, as Ralph Lauren group president, North American wholesale, Roy was responsible for Polo, Lauren and Chaps apparel brands for men, women and children as well as home categories. Over her 13 years with the company, she also served as group president Lauren Brands and president of Lauren.

Earlier in her career, Roy held various merchandising responsibilities at Associated Merchandising Corporation and Abraham & Straus. Roy previously served as a member of the board of directors of Weight Watchers International, Inc and served on its audit committee.

“As a senior executive and director, Kim has developed a strong track record with premier retail and consumer companies, and we are pleased to welcome her to the Chico’s FAS Board,” said David F Walker, chair of the Company’s board. “We believe Kim’s knowledge in brand strategy, merchandising, retail business operations, multi-channel marketing and international brand development will help inform our own strategies and growth opportunities in these areas.”

“I am looking forward to Kim’s counsel and contributions as our newest independent director as we work to build on our strong brand foundation and enhance the growth and operating effectiveness of the Company,” said Shelley Broader, CEO and president of Chicos.

“I have long admired the loyalty that women have to the brands within the Chico’s FAS portfolio.  I am excited to join the Company’s board and look forward to working with my new director colleagues, as well as Shelley and the management team, to enhance the connections our brands have with our customers and drive shareholder value,” said Roy.

Chicos FAS, through its brands – Chico’s, White House Black Market and Soma is a leading omnichannel specialty retailer of women’s private branded, sophisticated, casual-to-dressy clothing, intimates and complementary accessories. (PC)
