Charming Shoppes Inc, a leading multi-brand, multi-channel specialty apparel retailer specializing in women's plus-size apparel, announced an executive management change.

Joseph M. Baron, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, has assumed leadership of the Company's Bensalem-based retail businesses on an interim basis, following the departure of Diane M. Paccione, who has left the Company to assume the position of Chief Executive Officer at DEB Shops, Inc. The Company's Bensalem-based retail businesses include Fashion Bug, Catherines Plus Sizes, Lane Bryant Outlet and Petite Sophisticate Outlet. Charming Shoppes, Inc. is conducting a search for an appropriate successor to Paccione.

Since 2002, Baron has served as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Charming Shoppes. His career in retailing has spanned over 35 years, including various management and executive management positions during his 30-year career at Sears, Roebuck & Co.

Commenting on today's announcement, Dorrit J. Bern, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Charming Shoppes, Inc. said, "In the last six years, Joe has made many strong contributions to Charming Shoppes, including leading the development and launch of our outlet channel business, and building a platform which has supported the strong growth of our e- commerce business.

A few years ago, Joe was instrumental in the repositioning of our Lane Bryant brand following our acquisition of Lane Bryant in 2001. Most recently, we called upon Joe's leadership and organizational talents to transition our direct-to-consumer business through an executive leadership change, which led to the successful launch of the Lane Bryant Woman catalog, and improvements in our core catalog businesses."
