Colortyme Names Cathy Skula President And CEO

December 21, 2011 // Franchising.com // PLANO, Texas – Colortyme, America’s oldest franchisor of independently owned-and-operated rent-to-own stores, today announced the appointment of Cathy Skula to president and CEO, effective January 1, 2012.

Reporting to Rent-A-Center President and Chief Operating Officer Mitch Fadel, Skula succeeds Bob Bloom who left Colortyme in October of this year. “Cathy brings a wealth of experience to a very important position,” said Fadel. “We’re excited about her new role.”

Most recently, Skula was division vice president at Rent-A-Center (NASDAQ: RCII), the world’s largest rent-to-own operator, of which Colortyme is an independent, wholly owned subsidiary.

Skula’s career with Rent-A-Center dates to 1994 when she accepted a position at a New Jersey store. She quickly advanced through the ranks, being named district manager and regional director before being promoted to division vice president in 2009.

Earning a Bachelor’s Degree from Dickinson College in Pennsylvania, Skula also spent a semester studying abroad at the Mendeleev University in Moscow, Russia. She resides in Frisco, Texas with her husband and their 12-year-old twins.

“I’m thrilled at the prospect of spearheading Colortyme’s growth,” said Skula, who stressed the importance of franchisee and coworker input. “Operational feedback is key to Colortyme’s continued success.”
