Maternity apparel retailer, Destination Maternity has appointed Lisa Gavales to the Board of Directors, effective March 18, 2019. Gavales will be a member of the firm’s nominating & corporate governance committee. In conjunction with this appointment, current Board member Holly Alden has resigned to pursue other interests, effective March 13, 2019.

Gavales brings over 25 years of public and private company leadership experience, with a focus on retail, digital and strategic operations, ecommerce, corporate governance, and marketing, the company said in a press release.

“We are very pleased to welcome Lisa to our Board of Directors and look forward to benefiting from her strong operational leadership experience and background in brand building, digital and ecommerce. We believe Lisa’s extensive experience will be highly valuable as the company continues to optimise its operations across brick-and-mortar and digital channels, improves profitability and rationalises expenses. We would also like to thank Holly for her many contributions to Destination Maternity’s ongoing transformation and we wish her well in her future endeavours,” Anne-Charlotte Windal, Destination Maternity’s independent chair of the Board of Directors said.

Gavales has served interim leadership positions for Bluestem Brands since October 2017, first as president of its Northstar portfolio and since February 2018 as interim CEO. Before Bluestem, Lisa was chairman, chief executive officer, and president of Things Remembered. Prior to that, she served as president and chief marketing officer of Talbots. Lisa currently sits on the boards of Bluestem, True Religion, and Goodwill of Greater Cleveland. Lisa has an MBA and BS from the University of Bridgeport.

“I am honoured to join the Destination Maternity Board of Directors and to work with an exceptional company at such an exciting point in its growth trajectory. I have always admired the company’s brand portfolio and have tremendous respect for Marla and the entire leadership team. I look forward to working with them and being a part of Destination Maternity’s ongoing transformation,” Gavales said. (GK)
