Strouds makes executive promotions
January 30, 2002,
City of Industry, CA — Specialty retailer Strouds has promoted Jeff Stroud to the new position of senior vp of stores, Internet and marketing, effective immediately. In addition, executives Ed Hakari and Pat Difani have also been promoted.
After serving as vp of store operations since May 2001, the company hopes Stroud will generate greater synergy among marketing, merchandising and store presentation in his new position. He will continue to report to Rob Valone, president. Over the past 10 years, he has served in merchandising and marketing positions at the company, as well as spending over a year at the now-defunct ihome.com.
Pat Difani, who will also report to Stroud, has been promoted to regional manager for stores after serving as district manager. She will oversee 28 stores in the company's California markets.
