Importantly, he has a long track record of success at Nordstrom, and we believe he will provide strong brand guidance for our Robert Graham, Hudson, and SWIMS businesses. I look forward to working closely with Tom as we further focus our efforts on the wholesale relationships to grow our businesses over the long-term.”
