Nordstrom has named its first-ever chief merchandising officer.

The department store retailer named Teri Bariquit to the newly created role of chief merchandising officer. Bariquit, who has been with Nordstrom for 33 years, will serve as a member of the company’s executive team, leading the full-price and off-Price merchandising areas. She will report to Nordstrom co-president Pete Nordstrom.

Bariquit spent a significant part of her career at Nordstrom supporting the evolution and continuous improvement of all aspects of the merchandising organization. Most recently, she served as executive VP, merchandise planning and solutions, a position she held since 2012. In this role, she supported merchandise planning, inventory deployment, solutions and strategic capabilities across all channels.

“During her 33-year career with Nordstrom, Teri has demonstrated unparalleled understanding of our customer needs and has an excellent grasp on the complexities of our industry,” Pete Nordstrom said. “Merchandising is in her DNA and I’ve consistently been inspired by her ability to reimagine the future. Relationships are a key part of our strategy and our unique ability to work with both established and emerging brands is what differentiates Nordstrom in a highly competitive space.”
