Glennon was previously executive vice president and chief financial officer for Teavana, a tea and accessory retailer also based in Atlanta. While at Teavana, Glennon created operating infrastructures and strategies for the brand’s retail expansion and revenue growth, as well as spearheading the brand’s IPO in 2011. Teavana was acquired by Starbucks in 2012 for $620 million. In his new role, Glennon will be in charge of leading global finance, legal, IT, sourcing, data analytics, and manufacturing. He will report directly to Jan Singer, who was appointed as the new CEO in June. “We couldn’t be happier that Dan Glennon has joined Spanx,” Singer said in a statement. “His experience and leadership will be extremely valuable as Spanx continues to evolve and take shape for the next phase of growth. He is a great fit for us, and Sara [Blakely] and I are excited to have him on our team.” 

Spanx launched a denim range in June and is targeting a younger demographic, in addition to their core clientele, by introducing new undergarments in bright pops of color, lace detail, and new cuts. Spanx will also be opening a retail location in Atlanta’s recently opened Buckhead Atlanta, the city’s $1.5 billion upscale shopping complex.
