Crate and Barrel Names New CEO

Diemoz is currently chief development officer for California-based Restoration Hardware. He will start his new role with Crate and Barrel on Aug. 1.

“Doug is a great cultural fit for our brands,” Neela Montgomery, head of the Crate and Barrel board, said in a statement. “I am confident that he will promote change that builds on the heritage of our brands.”

A 20-year retail veteran, Diemoz joined Restoration Hardware in March 2014. He was responsible for developing and leading the company’s global expansion efforts and emerging businesses. Previously, he was with MEXX, Williams-Sonoma and Gap.

Diemoz, 47, fills the void at Crate and Barrel after the August resignation of Sascha Bopp, who had been CEO since 2012. Adrian Mitchell, Crate and Barrel’s chief operating officer and chief financial officer, has been interim CEO during the search for Bopp’s replacement.
