Williams-Sonoma Appoints Ross To Lead Rejuvenation Brand

Williams-Sonoma has appointed Ryan Ross to lead the company’s Rejuvenation brand.

As executive vice president, Ross will report to Laura Alber, president and CEO of Williams-Sonoma. His responsibilities include driving the growth strategies of Rejuvenation. He succeeds Alex Bellos, who recently became president of the company’s West Elm brand.

The appointment marks Ross’ return to Williams-Sonoma, where from 2000 to 2008 he held positions of increasing responsibility in the company’s Pottery Barn brand. Ultimately he became vp/e-commerce. Most recently, Ross was evp/marketing, creative and digital commerce at HSN.

“Ryan has deep expertise across all aspects of retail— merchandising, product design, marketing, e-commerce and stores— with a proven track record of delivering quality performance and results. His extensive retail experience, his motivational and collaborative leadership style, and his deep understanding of customer behavior make him an exceptional choice,” Alber said.
