In this newly created role, Dunn will leverage her nearly 30 years’ experience spanning equity research, investment banking, consulting, and finance to ensure Caleres aligns its growth ambitions and strategic communications with delivering shareholder value.

Achieving our growth objectives will require disciplined execution and coordinated communication. I am confident Liz’s knowledge and expertise will support our efforts to drive value for our shareholders.”

Previously, Dunn spent over a decade as a sell-side equity research analyst covering footwear & apparel, luxury, department stores, and specialty retail. Throughout her career, Dunn has been featured in national print and television media as a subject matter expert on consumer companies and stocks. She has served on both public company and non-profit boards. Early in her career, Dunn worked in the finance departments of Liz Claiborne and Gap Inc., and she began her career in the consumer investment banking group at Bear Stearns. She holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Spelman College.
