ANN ARBOR, Mich.— Borders Group, Inc. has appointed Anne Frazer to the new position of senior vice president, merchandise planning, replenishment and allocation, effective today.

Her skill at managing teams in a retail environment, complemented by seven years of experience as a strategy consultant across a variety of industries, makes Anne uniquely qualified for this new post. She will play a significant role in helping us implement our strategic plans.”
