HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill.–An outgrowth of its recent restructuring, Sears named Douglas Moore senior vice president and president of appliances. Moore most recently served as senior vice president of hard-lines merchandising.
This month, Tina Settecase, vice president and general merchandise manager of home appliances, retired after 35 years with the retailer.
Sears also named John Froman senior vice president and president of tools and lawn and garden.
Froman was most recently chief executive officer of Namco LLC, a regional chain of family recreation superstores.
Who Moore and Froman report to was not available at press time.
“These appointments are tied to our new revised internal management and organizational structure,” a company spokesman told HFN.
In February, Sears set plans to restructure its operations around five business units: operating businesses, support, brands, online and real estate.
