RH Promotes Stangl, Stanchak to Office of President
Retailer RH (NYSE: RH) said it has expanded the office of the president and promoted two executives to new positions within the office.
The retailer formerly known as Restoration Hardware said Sandra Stangl had been named president, chief merchandising and business development officer, while David Stanchak had been named president, chief real estate and development officer.
They join Eri Chaya, president, chief creative officer, DeMonty Price, president, chief operating, service and values officer, and Karen Boone, president, chief financial and administrative officer in the office of the president. All report to RH Chairman and CEO Gary Friedman.
In her new role Stangl will lead merchandising, inventory planning, and sourcing for RH Interiors, Modern, Outdoor, Baby & Child, Teen, and Contract, across the company’s physical, digital, and print channels of distribution.
Stangl joined the company in May after a 23-year career at Williams-Sonoma, where she had been president of its Pottery Barn brands.
In his new role, Stanchak will lead real estate development, architecture and design, for all of the company’s brands, concepts, and facilities domestically and internationally.
Stanchak has served as RH’s chief real estate and transformation officer since May 2017 and was chief real estate and development officer from May 2015 to May 2017. From 2008 to 2013, he was senior vice president of Dick’s Sporting Goods and president of Golf Galaxy.
“They are both deeply passionate about the vision we are pursuing and the culture we are creating, as we continue our quest to become one of the most admired brands in the world,” Friedman said of Stangl and Stanchak. “They have demonstrated their ability to build and lead cross functional teams that have achieved industry leading results.”
Friedman continued, “The Office of the President is designed to promote cross functional collaboration, by leading the company in an integrated fashion, tearing down the silos that exist in most organizations of scale.”
