Sears Marketing Chief Leaving

CHICAGO — Sears, Roebuck and Co.’s senior vice president of marketing David Selby is leaving the retailer Oct. 15, the company said.

Taking over Selby’s duties is Janine Bousquette, 41, who was named to the new position of executive vice president and chief customer and marketing officer, a Sears representative said. Bousquette reports to Alan Lacy, Sears’ chairman and chief executive officer.

Bousquette most recently was running her own consulting practice in Los Angeles.

Selby, 45, joined the Hoffman Estates, Ill., retailer in 1997 as vice president of marketing services. He was promoted to his current position early last year. His next move is being “finalized,” the Sears representative said. Selby could not be reached for comment.

Selby held a number of positions at Leo Burnett previous to joining Sears. The company’s $600 million advertising account is split between Ogilvy & Mather and Young & Rubicam.
