"Jan's role in helping to lead and innovate at premium, global brands across the apparel, footwear and beauty industries, combined with her deep understanding of the consumer, make her the perfect fit for Spanx. I'm confident that she will transition from the locker room to the fitting room seamlessly. I am grateful to Gregg Ribatt for his role in leading the company through this transition and setting us up for the next phase of growth."

"Spanx is an incredible brand with unique and powerful consumer connections, and I'm excited to join such a dynamic company," said Singer.
