She began her career with May Department Stores and has recently served as a consultant to the retail industry, according to a company press release.

Bruce Rockowitz, chief executive officer and vice chairman of Global Brands Group Holding Limited, said, “We are excited to welcome proven retail leader Adrienne Lazarus as Frye’s new CEO. Frye is one of the most important brands in our portfolio, and under her powerful leadership, will be positioned to continue its growth as a global lifestyle brand.”
