Taryn Rose International, the luxury footwear brand, appointed Donald Petersen to vice president of operations, effective immediately. Petersen managed operations for Reebok International in the United States and Europe, oversaw logistics for multiple brands at VF Corp. and most recently was vice president of operations for Vans. He reports to Robert Meers, CEO.

This marks the second key hire since Meers, formerly Lululemon's CEO, joined Taryn Rose International in November 2008.


“I am thrilled to have Donald join the leadership team that we have been building over the last several months,” says Meers. “Donald and I have worked together in the past, his extensive experience in operations and supply chain will be invaluable as our company continues to grow.”
