Beall's Inc. on Monday hired Lana Cain Krauter as president of the Bradenton retailer's department store unit. Krauter previously had been executive vice president of J.C. Penney Co.'s men's and kids apparel unit and last fall was named to the Power 100 list of DNR, a retail trade journal. Earlier in her career, she spent eight years as senior vice president of female and intimate apparel and accessories at Sears Roebuck & Co. at the height of the Chicago chain's "Softer Side of Sears" campaign. The post at Beall's has been vacant almost two years.
