Big Lots Names ceo

COLUMBUS, OHIO - Retail veteran David Campisi will succeed Steve Fishman as ceo of Big Lots, effective May 6.
     Campisi was most recently chairman and ceo of Respect Your Universe (RYU), a publicly- traded company focused on performance apparel and equipment. Prior to that, he was with The Sports Authority for nearly seven years, eventually becoming chairman and ceo. Earlier, he held executive level merchandising roles at Kohl's, Fred Meyer Inc., and Meijer and Frank Company.
     Said Campisi, "Big Lots has a unique niche as the largest broad line closeout retailer in North America, and after spending time with the board of directors, I am excited about the opportunities to build upon what Steve and the team has created."
