    Leading young women's specialty retailer The Wet Seal announced the promotions of its two divisional merchandising managers for the Wet Seal brand. Kim Bajrech has been newly appointed to the role of senior vice president-general merchandising manager of apparel, and Debbie Shinn has been promoted to senior vice president-general merchandising manager of accessories and ready-to-wear.

Their new promotions were effective as of March 25, and both women will continue reporting to CEO John Goodman.

    "We are thrilled to recognize the talents and accomplishments of Kim and Debbie," Goodman said. "They have a deep understanding of the fast fashion market, they know the Wet Seal customer well and they are executing on all fronts as we return the business to its roots. I will continue to work closely with Kim and Debbie and feel confident that we have the right team in place to help us reenergize the Wet Seal business and drive growth."
