Former Lands’ End executive Bill Bass has joined the board of directors of Figleaves.com, retailers of lingerie, underwear and swimwear, as part of the company’s plans to expand in the U.S. and internationally.
Bass was senior vice president at Lands’ End responsible for e-commerce and international sales. Following the sale of Lands’ End to Sears, Bass also served as General Manager of Sears’ direct to customer division.
Bass is currently CEO of start-up company Fair Indigo, a multi-channel retailer of fair trade apparel, and serves on the board of Marc Ecko Enterprises. U.K.-based Figleaves entered the US market three years ago.
