Hibbett Sports, a leading athletic-inspired fashion retailer headquartered in Alabama, US, has announced that the company has appointed Lorna Nagler and Dorlisa Flur to the company’s Board of Directors. The appointments increase the size of the Board to 10. Nagler will serve on the compensation committee and Flur will serve on the audit committee.

Nagler has served on the Board of Directors of Ulta Beauty, a Fortune 500 company, since 2009, where she sits on the compensation and nominating and corporate governance committees. She also serves on the advisory board for the University of Wisconsin and works with several non-profit organisations, according to Hibbett.

Nagler was resident of Bealls Department Stores, a privately held omni-channel chain, from 2011 to 2016, where she developed a business strategy to recapture lost volume and reposition the company for future growth. Nagler re-platformed the company’s ecommerce business, introduced new national brands, and strategically invested in customer relations management capabilities to launch a contact database that grew to several million customers.

Flur is currently an independent senior advisor and was previously chief strategy and transformation officer at Southeastern Grocers from 2016 until July 2018. In her prior role, she led analytics and programme management. Flur also integrated traditional and digital channels into a coordinated target marketing programme and strategically guided the company’s ecommerce direction.

Flur serves on the Board of Advisors for the Belk College of Business at UNC-Charlotte and is a founding trustee and immediate past Board chair for the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in Charlotte. She has also served on the boards of other non-profit organisations. Flur holds a master of business administration from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University as well as a bachelor of science in computer science and economics from Duke.

“We are pleased to welcome Lorna and Dorlisa to the Hibbett Board. We are focused on expanding the skillset composition of our Board. In addition to Lorna’s board experience in guiding one of the most successful public retailers in the country, her extensive merchandising and operations background will help us continue to optimise our categories toward a more fashion-forward assortment with strong connectivity between our apparel, footwear and hard-line categories. Lorna’s depth and capabilities in customer loyalty programs with multi-faceted customer bases and her ecommerce experience will be instrumental as we move forward,” Anthony Crudele, chairman of the Board said.

“Dorlisa’s strategic skills and experience in transforming multi-billion-dollar retailers will be invaluable as we integrate, grow and capitalise on the synergies inherent to our retail formats. As a former McKinsey partner, she brings a key skillset to our Board; but more specifically, she has applied this strategic perspective through C-level positions, managing nearly every line-operating function at several public and private retail companies with geographic dispersion and a varied customer base,” Crudele added.
