CANADA: Hudson's Bay promotes Greller to head up outlets
Canadian department store operator Hudson's Bay Company has appointed Jonathan Greller to head up its outlet stores.
Greller, previously group SVP for Hudson's Bay and Lord & Taylor, has been promoted to the role with immediate effect. He will lead all three group banners: Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Lord & Taylor and Hudson's Bay outlets.
"This is an exciting time for HBC and the Saks brand, as we look forward to our expansion into Canada," said Richard Baker, CEO of Hudson's Bay.
"Jonathan's experience and proven track record of success will help drive our growth strategy and elevate the Saks Off 5th experience on both sides of the border, and further develop the outlet platform for our Lord & Taylor and Hudson's Bay banners."
Last month, Hudson's Bay promoted its COO, Donald Watros, to the newly-expanded role of group president.
The appointment came a week after the company reported widening net losses in its third-quarter. The losses were mainly due to the cost of buying US-based luxury retailer Saks for US$2.9bn, which closed in November.
