Coldwater Creek Adds VP of Merchandising

SANDPOINT, ID — Matthew Dillon has joined Coldwater Creek as vice president and director of merchandising. Dillon will be responsible for developing and selecting merchandise for the company's multi-channel retailing strategy, which includes the four catalog titles, a web site and 21 retail stores.

Dillon was most recently senior vice president of merchandising and marketing for The Mark Group, which operates the Mark, Fore & Strike catalog and retail stores. He has spent 20 years in the apparel trade, holding executive and upper management posts at Bullock's, Spiegel and Bear Creek Corp.
