Neela Montgomery, an executive board member at the Otto Group, Crate and Barrel’s parent company, told employees that she would take on “most of Doug’s current responsibilities working closely with Steve ‘Woody’ Woodward, President and Chief Merchant, and Mike Relich, Chief Operating Officer, and the rest of the executive leadership team,” according to an internal memo obtained by the Tribune.
