Pandora today announced that Aimée Lapic will join the company as chief marketing officer, effective December 13. According to a press release, Lapic will lead the company’s consumer brand strategy, market positioning, performance-based and partnership marketing through digital, social and mobile marketing initiatives.
She comes to the company after 13 years at Gap Inc., where she was most recently chief marketing officer for Banana Republic and the general manager of BananaRepublic.com. Previously, she was a senior vice president and general manager of International Gap Outlet, where she drove 20 consecutive quarters of growth.
