Woo will be responsible for all marketing, brand and advertising programs for Sears, according to a Sears memo obtained by Reuters. Her appointment takes effect August 15, and she will report directly to David Friedman, SVP and president of marketing at Sears, according to the document.

Woo most recently served as CMO and strategy officer at FreshDirect. She has also held senior-level roles at 1-800-Flowers.com, Deutsche Bank and Bacardi.
