Google’s Glass division may be losing its lead engineer, but the company announced today that it had hiredĀ former Gap and Old Navy marketing chief Ivy Ross to head up the division. Ross will start her new position on May 19th.

Aside from Gap and Old Navy, Ross has also served as Chief Creative Officer for The Disney Store, headed up worldwide product design at Mattel, and, worked as Vice President of Design and Development for Outlook Eyewear atĀ Bausch & Lomb. That last position is perhaps the most relevant to her selection as the new head of Glass.
