The Dallas Morning News:
Tuesday Morning Corp. named a former Big Lots and Value City executive to be its new CEO as a Dallas hedge fund continues to spearhead changes at the closeout retail chain.
Brady Churches became chief executive officer of the Dallas-based chain of 850 stores, effective Tuesday, and he joined the board. In a letter to Tuesday Morning employees, Churches, 54, said he has closely followed and admired the company that was founded in Dallas in 1974.
He succeeds Kathleen Mason, who had been CEO for 12 years and was ousted in June after Dallas hedge fund Becker Drapkin Management LP said it had acquired 5.7 percent of Tuesday Morning's stock.
Mason filed a disability discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against her former employer. Her attorney Rogge Dunn said Tuesday that the EEOC recently suggested the parties participate in voluntary mediation while it continues to investigate Mason's charge that the board had considered her treatable breast cancer as a disability.
Mason has agreed to mediation, Dunn said. A Tuesday Morning spokesman declined to comment on the EEOC issue.
