Chief Merchandising Officer
Lisa Greenwald is J.Crew’s chief merchandising officer (CMO), overseeing merchandising and design for the J.Crew brand across all divisions (women’s, men’s and crewcuts). She’s been with the J.Crew Group for more than 14 years, having held various positions on both the J.Crew and Madewell teams. At Madewell, Lisa’s die-hard denim obsession and her pursuit of designer and wholesale partnerships (from Sézane to Nordstrom) grew the brand from $280M to almost $500M in four years. Since her promotion to CMO at J.Crew, she has helped deliver the brand’s first positive comp (Q2 2018) in 15 consecutive quarters.
Originally from Bethesda, Maryland, Lisa graduated from the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business with a bachelor of business administration. She started her career in Gap Inc.’s retail management program and went on to hold positions at Banana Republic and Club Monaco before joining J.Crew in 2004.
Lisa currently lives in Chelsea, Manhattan, with her husband, Eric, and two sons, Jordan and Benjamin, and enjoys spending her free time at the family’s lake house in western Connecticut, where you can find her “on a boat in the summer and on the couch with a glass of wine in the winter.”
