December 5, 2008

Ivon Fascio recently was hired as store manager for the Loyola University Bookstore. Fascio brings with her more than 20 years of experience in retail management, including supervision of both local and regional retail operations.

After graduating from the University of New Orleans, Fascio started her career in retail locally, working for D.H. Holmes Co. for 10 years in a variety of roles, including merchandise manager, buyer and assistant buyer and department manager. She later served as the district and store manager for Petrie Stores in Louisiana, and for the past 13 years, Fascio has worked in Texas for Follett Corporation, as a store manager, assistant manager and wholesale buyer.

Her expertise in retail management is expansive, including marketing, merchandising and inventory control. Her commitment to excellence in customer service led Fascio to be recognized as a President’s Values in Action Winner in 2006.

"Ivon is an exciting addition to the bookstore team. The community will benefit from her vast retail experience as she introduces new and exciting product lines in the bookstore and strengthens community relations," says Chris Cameron, director of co-curricular programs.

Fascio recently moved back to New Orleans from San Antonio, Texas, with her husband of 28 years, Ron. They are both members of St. Anselm’s Catholic Church in Madisonville, La.
