Footwear retail group Designer Brands has appointed Bill Jordan as its chief growth officer.
Jordan previously worked as the company’s executive vice president and president, although he has held a variety of positions within the business during the last 14 years. These have included chief administrative officer, executive vice president and chief legal officer, and president of Town Shoes.

We are continually investing in our people to ensure we have the right team to propel our company to the next level. Bill is a seasoned executive with a unique set of skills, and we look forward to benefiting from his talents in this newly created role.”
