George Golleher has resigned from the boards of directors of both Linens 'n Things and its parent, Linens Holding Co.
"To the knowledge of the registrants, Mr. Golleher did not resign due to any disagreement with the registrants' operations, policies, or practices," LNT said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Prior to that, she served as group svp of Zale Corp. and president of Zales, where LNT chairman and ceo Robert DiNicola was once ceo. She previously was the vp of merchandising for Macy's East Fine and Fashion Jewelry.
Golleher's departure was effective April 23.
