(Reuters) – J.Crew Group Inc on Tuesday appointed former Victoria’s Secret executive Jan Singer as chief executive officer, effective Feb. 2.
The new CEO is expected to stem falling sales and a dwindling cash flow at the fashion retailer, which has been grappling with competition from online firms such as Amazon.com Inc (O:) that have been eating into traditional retailers’ market share.
Singer resigned from L Brands (N:) in November 2018, where she headed its struggling Victoria’s Secret’s lingerie division.
She will be paid a base salary of $1.25 million annually, with a sign-on bonus of $2.5 million, J. Crew said in a regulatory filing https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1051251/000156459020002278/jcg-8k_20200127.htm.
Michael J. Nicholson, who served as J.Crew’s interim CEO, will return to his former role as president of the fashion retailer.
