Holt, Renfrew & Co., Limited Announces Executive Changes

Loblaw Companies Limited announced that, effective September, Mario Grauso, president of its Joe Fresh division, will transition to lead Holt Renfrew, and Co., Limited, where he has been appointed president. Grauso leaves Joe Fresh following a three-year tenure, including two years as president, during which the company's operations, network and products were significantly and successfully re-set. Under Grauso's leadership, Joe Fresh repositioned its international growth strategy, launched e-commerce, added footwear and beauty lines, revamped its branding and streamlined its apparel assortment with the promise of essential style and exceptional value for families. Over more than 20 years in fashion, Grauso has been president of Vera Wang, and an executive of Giorgio Armani, Calvin Klein and other global fashion brands. He will remain with Joe Fresh until September, with a successor to be named before his departure. Grauso replaces Holt Renfrew's outgoing president, Mark Derbyshire. Loblaw and Joe Fresh are assured of Grauso's orderly departure and succession as Holt Renfrew is a sister company, under the ownership of the Weston family.

At 130,000 square feet, the Square One shop will be almost four times larger than the Sherway Gardens site.
