After the departure of its former CEO, Belk has named MaryAnne Morin as president and chief merchandising officer.
She will lead the company’s merchandising, planning and private brands teams.
Morin’s retail career has extended through three decades, Belk noted. She has served as president at Stein Mart and Republic Clothing Group, as well as acting as an executive vp at Hudson Bay Co. She also has held key positions at Lord & Taylor, Macy’s and Echo Design Group.
“We’re thrilled to welcome MaryAnne to Belk,” said Don Hendricks, Belk CEO, in announcing the appointment. “We are always striving to provide our customers with the best shopping experiences, which include offering quality products they want at prices they can afford. MaryAnne’s wealth of knowledge will help us make that experience even better, whether customers are shopping in our stores, on belk.com or our mobile app.”
