US based apparel marketer J.Crew Group has appointed James Brett as its chief executive officer (CEO). Brett, an executive with more than 25 years of retail experience, most recently served as the president of specialty home furnishing company West Elm. Brett will assume the CEO position this July and will also join the company's board of directors.

"This is an exciting time for J.Crew as we continue to make significant changes to position our company for long-term success," said chairman Millard Drexler. "As chairman and an owner of the Company, it is my responsibility to focus on the future of J.Crew and find the right leadership to execute on our strategic plans."

"Brett has a proven track record of pushing for innovation and growing omni-channel brands. I look forward to moving into my new role and assist Brett and the team in every way possible to help ensure a smooth and successful transition," added Drexler.

"I am honoured to work with J.Crew's talented team of leaders, board of directors and Mickey, who have built an iconic American brand. J.Crew has tremendous opportunity to play a more meaningful role in our lives, and I look forward to leading it through its next phase of growth," said Brett.

Prior to West Elm, Brett was the chief merchandising officer for the Urban Outfitters division of Urban Outfitters, Inc. He has also served in various merchandising roles at other retailers including Anthropologie, the J.C. Penney Company, Inc. and May Department Stores Company. (RR)
