Sears Holdings Corp. has named Edgar Huber president and CEO of Lands' End, the company said in an August 1 statement. He will replace former CEO Nicholas P. M. Coe who left the company in May to become CEO of Bath & Body Works Brand Management.

Huber will be responsible for driving growth and profit opportunities for the Lands' End brand. He most recently served as EVP of global business development for retailer Liz Claiborne's Juicy Couture brand. Prior to his role at Juicy Couture, Huber held several senior positions at L'Oréal.

"Edgar is a proven leader of branded products and I'm delighted to welcome him to our highly talented Lands' End team," said Lou D'Ambrosio, Sears Holdings' CEO and president, in a statement.

In May, Sears Holdings filed a lawsuit against Coe that said he violated a clause in his 2009 severance agreement by taking the CEO position at Bath & Body Works.

Sears named D'Ambrosio president and CEO of the holding company during its fiscal year 2010 earnings call. During the call, Sears reported that its revenues declined 0.8% to $13.1 billion for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2010, which ended January 29. Revenues in the full fiscal year declined 1.6% compared with the prior year to $43.3 billion.
