Designer Brands appoints chief growth officer

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.

In his new position, he will work closely with Designer Brands’ management team to exploit growth opportunities.

Designer Brands has commenced a search for Jordan’s successor in his previous role. Meanwhile, the company’s chief executive Roger Rawlins will also serve as interim president until an appointment is made.

Designer Brands operates a portfolio of retail concepts in nearly 1,000 locations under the Designer Shoe Warehouse, The Shoe Company and Shoe Warehouse fascias,
