Chico's appoints new CFO

Chico's (NYSE:CHS) appointed Todd Vogensen as SVP, CFO to replace Pamela Knous.

Prior to this position, Vogensen served as the retailer's SVP of finance. After joining the company in October 2009 as VP of planning and strategy, he also served as VP of investor relations before his promotion to finance.

Previous career moves included Michaels from 2005 to 2009 and Gap from 2003 to 2005. He also held several finance management positions at Hewlett Packard and worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Chico has announced several strategic moves as of late including an announcement to enter the international market—three new stores in the Ontario, Canada area.

In addition, the retailer is set to open 107 domestic stores in total this year, down from a previously estimated 120 to 130 stores predicted earlier in the year.

Vogensen will report to Kent Kleeberger, Chico's executive VP, COO and its CFO from 2008 to 2011.
