Lands’ End  |  Dodgeville

Andrew McLean became chief executive officer of Lands’ End in November. Prior to joining the Dodgeville-based retailer, McLean was a president of American Eagle Outfitters, the Pittsburgh-based parent of the American Eagle and Aerie brands. There, he led international operations and innovation for the $5 billion retailer across Canada, Greater Asia, Europe and Mexico. He’s previously held senior positions with Urban Outfitters, Liz Claiborne and Gap. McLean is also a board advisor at Sarona Commerce Ventures, a member of World 50 Inc., and a board member of GhostRetail.

A multi-channel retailer with about 5,000 employees, Lands’ End last year reported $1.6 billion in net revenue, the highest it had seen since 2011, and $33.4 million in net income. Like many retailers, the company continues its evolution toward a digital-first approach. Its U.S. e-commerce net revenue was up 7% last year. Lands’ End has also expanded its third-party revenue stream in recent years through its partnership with Menomonee Falls-based Kohl’s Corp., now selling its clothing in 500 Kohl’s stores. It also recently launched an e-commerce partnership with home shopping giant QVC.
