Spar reports to Dennis Brown, group president with overall responsibility for NPD's Consumer and Commercial Technology, Beauty, Home and Fashion & Sports groups. Director Lori Monaco will continue to lead NPD's Footwear and Active Apparel services – also reporting to Brown.

“In his new role, Art will strengthen NPD's research and customer service capabilities for the apparel industry,” Brown said. “His broad and deep industry knowledge and expertise will ensure that our clients continue to receive the high quality of information and insight that NPD is famous for.”

In his former role as Vice President, Apparel Client Development, Spar led the integration of NPD's consumer information source, AccuPanelSM, with the company's complementary product offerings and played a critical role in educating clients on the applications and benefits of the panel.
