BY Marianne Wilson

Kirkland’s has removed the “interim” from the title of its finance head.

The home décor retailer named Nicole Strain as executive VP and CFO, effective June 27, 2019. She has served as Kirkland’s interim CFO since May 2017.

Strain served as controller of Kirkland’s from November 2016 to April 2017. Previously, she served as VP of finance and principal accounting officer for restaurant company Logan’s Roadhouse, from 2005 through July 2015. While at Logan’s, she also served as the interim CFO and principal financial officer.

“Nicole has done an outstanding job in her role as interim CFO, and after an exhaustive search with strong candidates from a variety of backgrounds, the board concluded that Nicole has the broad financial experience and relevant industry knowledge that can best serve Kirkland’s as we transform the business,” said Woody Woodward, CEO, Kirkland’s, which operates 431 stores in 37 states. “Nicole has been deeply involved in the current strategic initiatives we are implementing to broaden our product reach, expand BOPIS and improve our supply chain efficiency. I’m confident that her passion for excellence will help us further accelerate efforts to improve the customer experience and advance our business improvement initiatives.”
