Francesca's CFO resigns

Specialty retailer Francesca's CFO Mark Vendetti has taken another offer as CFO at a yet unnamed company and is resigning.

Cindy Thomassee, currently VP of accounting, will take on the role of interim CFO beginning Dec. 4 while a search for a new CFO is conducted.

"I would like to thank Mark for all of his efforts as our chief financial officer over the last two and a half years," said Michael Barnes, Francesca's chairman, president and CEO. "I am grateful for Mark's time at Francesca's and I wish him continued success in his new role."

Thomassee has been with Francesca's for eight years. Prior to joining the retailer, she was controller at LRG Furniture for more than nine years.

Francesca's just hired a chief merchandising officer from Kohl's last month and made multiple changes to its board of directors last summer. Press Release
