Hudson’s Bay Company has named Jonathan Greller president of its outlet business, overseeing the 72 Saks Off Fifth stores, four Lord & Taylor outlets and one Hudson’s Bay outlet. He reports to the Office of the Chairman.
Greller first joined Lord & Taylor in 1993 and rose to SVP/GMM of men’s and kids and later women’s. He was COO of Doneger Group briefly before returning to Lord & Taylor’s parent company, Hudson Bay Company, as SVP of private brand apparel and wholesale. He was promoted to Group SVP in November.
In his new role, Greller will be responsible for rolling out what HBC says may be 25 Saks Off Fifth stores in Canada and more in the U.S. over the next few years.
“This is an exciting time for HBC and the Saks brand, as we look forward to our expansion into Canada,” said HBC chief Richard Baker. “Jonathan’s experience and proven track record of success will help drive our growth strategy and elevate the Saks Off Fifth experience on both sides of the border, and further develop the outlet platform for our Lord & Taylor and Hudson’s Bay banners.”
