Two new hires announced Target on Tuesday, including the appointment of Michelle Wlazlo as Senior Vice President of Apparel and Accessories and the nomination of Erika De Salvatore for the newly created role of Vice President of Visual Merchandising.
Wlazlo will oversee the retailer’s merchandising programs for womenswear, menswear, childrenswear and accessories, as well as the company’s baby business. An experienced professional in the retail sector, Wlazlo served most recently as Senior Vice President of Global Merchandising at Gap, where she was responsible for brand development and product assortment strategies.
Meanwhile, Erika De Salvatore has more than 15 years of visual merchandising experience and her background includes the role of Vice President, Visual Merchandising, Visual Operations, International and Flagship Visual at Express. In her position as VP of Visual Merchandising, De Salvatore will lead the development of visual strategies across all merchandising initiatives, with a focus on developing a compelling consumer experience.
“Over the past year, we’ve made significant progress against our goal to make Target famous for our signature product categories, and our guests have responded favorably to the focus and innovation we’ve showcased,” said Brian Cornell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Target.
“While I’m confident in our strategy and that we’re on the right path, we’re just
at the beginning of our journey. I believe Michelle and Erika will significantly advance Target’s efforts, in terms of our assortments and the overall experience we offer our guests.”
