Hudson’s Bay Company, the owner of the Saks Fifth Avenue department store chain, has promoted chief operating officer Donald Watros to the role of president.

Taking up his new position on 1 February 2014, Watros will continue to report to chief executive Richard Baker.

"Don’s significant retail experience combined with his track record of operational excellence were key in selecting him for this important role and will further our development as a premier North American fashion retailer."
