The Children’s Place Inc., a Secaucus-based children’s specialty apparel retailer, announced it has appointed Pamela B. Wallack to the newly created position of President Global Product, effective immediately.
She will be responsible for global merchandising, design, sourcing and production.
"Pam Wallack is one of the most talented childrenswear executives in the country. Her success as President of Gap Kids & Baby, coupled with her years of product development and merchandising experience at Kids R Us and Babies R Us, makes her ideally suited to lead these key product functions at The Children's Place,” Jane Elfers, CEO and president, said.
“As we look to the future, developing and implementing a best in class Personalized Customer Contact Strategy is our single biggest opportunity. Given the ongoing shift to digital commerce, our digitally savvy millennial Mom, our consistently strong operating results, and the changes in competitor dynamics, we have made the decision to significantly accelerate the development and implementation of this substantial opportunity. With Pam’s arrival, I can now devote significantly more time to delivering the financial benefits associated with our Personalized Customer Contact Strategy,” Elfers said.
"I have watched the remarkable transformation of The Children's Place over the past several years and I am excited to partner with Jane, and the best in class management team she has assembled, to continue to build upon the company's impressive track record,” Wallack said.
Wallack has held senior positions at major retailers, including David’s Bridal Inc., where she was CEO and president, and Gap Inc., where she was executive vice president of Gap Global Creative Center.
