In that role, she will be responsible for leading store and field operations, focusing on driving customer-obsessed retail strategies, and delivering world class experiences throughout the stores, Kindthread said in a media statement.
Kindthread recently announced its acquisition of Landau, White Cross, Chefwear, and Scrubs & Beyond, squarely placing Kindthread in a category of its own. The focus of the company is to deliver innovative products and memorable experiences to healthcare and services professionals around the world, while driving positive community impact. Mahoney’s addition is one of a series of key hires that will reinforce the company and its teams to increase its focus on customers, enhance product and retail experience, scale store operations and build an omni-channel experience that is connective and serves the healthcare community in a unique and supportive way.
Kindthread is expanding upon its leadership team, bringing significant expertise across supply chain, retail, sales, design, apparel, and workwear. Together at the enterprise level, this group will reinvigorate the portfolio's pioneering brands whose historical product and service innovations are synonymous with the healthcare industry today. The company plans to cultivate talent and capabilities within the organisation and further invest in new talent, reaching outside the apparel industry to acquire best-in-class executives across retail, marketing, digital, creative services, and community impact, according to Kindthread.
Mahoney’s retail expertise is outstanding and she brings over 25 years’ experience of leading strategy and store expansion to the company. Prior to joining Kindthread, she worked as VP of stores at Bath & Body Works and White Barn, where she oversaw retail operations within their fleet. During her tenure there, which spanned 21 years, Mahoney successfully fostered a quality-centric work environment, excelled at translating roadmaps into action plans, and cultivated an inclusive environment for teams to excel.
“I am thrilled to join the Kindthread team, and to bring my unwavering commitment to unforgettable experiences, talent and brand development to Scrubs & Beyond. I am energised by the Kindthread mission and purpose, providing exceptional products and experiences to healthcare professionals. I believe there is tremendous upside in this underserved category and look forward to being part of the modernisation of the brand,” Mahoney said.
“Attracting and developing key talent is critical in supporting and driving Kindthread’s goals and continued transformation. As we shape our future success, we couldn’t be more thrilled that Angela has joined our team. We believe she will be a key contributor to our company growth and we look forward to integrating her experience with our mission,” David Murphy, chief executive officer of Kindthread, said.
