Too little, too late for Lumber Liquidators?


Lumber Liquidators has hired a new executive to help it fight off an avalanche of legal troubles that has hammered the flooring retailer.

The company announced that Jill Witter is its new chief compliance and legal officer.

Witter has been consulting and advising the compliance team since early July, and in a more official capacity, she will be in charge of the company's legal matters, including litigation management, compliance, quality assurance and more.

She has previously served as general counsel at Rayonier Inc. and the Forest Resources Divison of the International Paper Company, as well as general counsel and ethics and compliance officer at Novation LLC.

Witter will be reporting to founder and acting CEO Thomas Sullivan, who has been running the company ever since Robert Lynchsuddenly resigned in May.

"I have great confidence that Jill will help strengthen our compliance programs and reinforce our ongoing commitment to uncompromising integrity in how we conduct ourselves, individually and as a company, as we continue to focus on our strength of providing quality flooring, at the best price, for our customers," said Sullivan.
