NEW YORK-Former Lenox executive Glenn De Stefano was named president of StoreBound, the developer of branded housewares.

De Stefano is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company, and reports to Evan Dash, founder and CEO, who retains his oversight of the company’s overall strategic direction. He succeeds Shaun MacKenzie who left the company.

“Glenn is an accomplished leader in the global luxury consumer goods market and architect of innovative new businesses and brand reinventions that have delivered strong results,” Dash said. “He has strong retail merchandising roots combined with a great balance of creativity and business acumen.”

Prior to joining StoreBound, De Stefano was Lenox’s division president, responsible for the tabletop and giftware manufacturer’s Dansk, Donna Karan/DKNY Lenox, Food & Wine, and Michael Wainwright brands. He began his career holding buying and planning positions for Macy’s East, and joined Lenox in 2000.

From 2000 to 2008, De Stefano held a number of positions at Lenox, rising eventually to vice president and general manager of the Lenox and Kate Spade brands. He left the company in 2009 to become president of Rosenthal USA, the subsidiary of the Germany-based tabletop company. He returned to Lenox in 2010 in his most recent role with the company.
