USA: Saks Names George Jones Parisian President
Retail giant Saks In on Monday said the president and chief executive of its department store group, George Jones, will also take control of its Parisian specialty department store division.
The Alabama-based company said in a statement that Rob Gruen had resigned as Parisian's president and chief executive after more than a year and a half in the role.
It also named Kevin Wills, most recently the senior vice president of merchandise planning and administration for the department store group, as Parisian's executive vice president for operations.
"Having executed our divisional consolidations over the last two years enables me now to devote more of my time and attention to the important Parisian business," Jones said.
