WASHINGTON — The National Retail Federation here said Tuesday that it has named Vicki Cantrell senior vice president, communities, and executive director, Shop.org , effective Oct. 31.
Cantrell most recently was chief operating officer and chief information officer at high-end women's apparel firm Tory Burch. Previously she was CIO at Georgio Armani.
At NRF, Cantrell will oversee all of the association's committees, including the CIO Council, the Association of Retail Technology Standards, and Loss Prevention.
"Finding an executive with the right experience and vision to foster and grow our communities was a tall task, and Vicki fits the bill perfectly," said Matthew Shay, NRF president and chief executive officer. "Her executive-level experience with major retail brands as well as prior experience with many of NRF's communities makes Vicki an incredible asset to round out the executive team at NRF."
