Canadian department store retailer Hudson's Bay has promoted a number of people to senior positions within the company as it shores up its new executive team. 

The changes come after chief merchant and executive vice president Liz Rodbell was promoted to president this summer, effective early next year. 

The company's executive vice president of speciality, Mary Turner, has been promoted to executive vice president of merchandising. She will report to Rodbell.

Wayne Drummond, senior vice president and general merchandise manager, will now serve as group senior vice president for ladies, men's, kids and luggage.

Jonathan Greller will take the role of group senior vice president for private brands and speciality, expanding his responsibilities to include global sourcing, Topshop/Topman, bridal and licensed. He was previously senior vice president.

MaryAnne Morin has also been promoted to group senior vice president for centre core, intimate apparel, ladies suits and dresses.

A spokesperson for the company told just-style the changes do not relate to its newly-acquired Saks business, only Hudson's Bay Department Store Group.

Last month, the company appointed Russ Hardin as its new chief creative officer and senior vice president, while, Michael Crotty was named chief marketing officer of its Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor brands.
