J. C. Penney Company Inc announced the appointments of Steven Lawrence to executive vice president and general merchandise manager of the Men's division and Clark McNaught to senior vice president and general merchandise manager of the Children's division.

In his new position, Steven Lawrence is responsible for the strategic merchandise leadership and development of the business plans for the Company's multi-billion dollar Men's apparel business, including some of the Company's most successful private brands such as Stafford, St. John's Bay and The Original Arizona Jean Company, along with exclusive designer brands including CONCEPTS by Claiborne and Solitude.

Prior to his new role, Lawrence served as senior vice president and general merchandise manager of JCPenney's Children's division since 2006. Before that, he was divisional vice president and divisional merchandising manager for Young Men's sportswear.

Lawrence joined JCPenney in 2000 from Foley's where he held positions of increasing responsibility in men's apparel for more than 10 years. He will report to Ken Hicks, president and chief merchandising officer, and join the Company's Executive Board. Lawrence replaces Lana Cain, who recently left JCPenney to pursue an opportunity outside of the Company.

Clark McNaught, a 25-year veteran of the retail industry, is responsible for the strategic merchandise leadership and development of the Children's division, including the leading children's private brand, Okie Dokie, and the recent launch of Messages from the Heart, a new line of infant apparel and gifts.
