RadioShack Corp. has hired two executive vice presidents, the retailer announced this week. Huey Long is the retail chain’s new executive vice president of strategy and consumer insights and Troy Risch is executive vice president of operations. Both start Jan. 2.

Long and Risch will report to interim CEO Dorvin Lively, who stepped into that role following the September departure of CEO Jim Gooch. The retailer continues to search for a permanent chief executive.

Long’s responsibilities include marketing, business development and omnichannel, RadioShack says. Omnichannel is a term used to describe the coordination between selling channels, usually online and stores. RadioShack is No. 275 in Internet Retailer’s Top 500 Guide.  As of March 31, RadioShack operated more than 4,400 stores in the United States.

Long most recently worked for Sam’s Club, the warehouse club unit of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., as senior vice president and general merchandise manager. Prior to that role, Long worked for Amazon.com Inc. for two years as director of global sourcing. Amazon is No. 1 in the Top 500 Guide. Walmart.com is No. 4.

Risch’s responsibilities include store operations and real estate. He joins RadioShack following 19 years at Target Corp., No. 23 in the Guide. His most recent role at Target was as executive vice president of stores.
