WASHINGTON: The National Retail Federation has named Ellen Davis SVP and executive director of its education and research arm, the NRF Foundation.
Davis has worked at the NRF since 2002, and was most recently VP of communications.
She will restructure the foundation so that it better aligns with NRF's strategic plan. This will involve changing the focus of the ongoing “Retail Means Jobs” campaign to emphasize retail's contributions to the economy and the diverse career opportunities within the industry, the organization said in a statement.
Tita Freeman left the top communications role at the NRF earlier this month to rejoin the Business Roundtable.
