TORONTO-Jonathan Greller has been named president of outlets for Hudson’s Bay Company.
The move puts Greller in charge of the company’s three outlet banners: Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Lord & Taylor outlets and Hudson’s Bay outlets. He reports directly to the Hudson’s Bay office of the chairman.
In its statement announcing the hiring of Greller, Hudson’s Bay said it is planning to expand the full Saks banner into Canada, opening as many as seven full-line Saks Fifth Avenue stores and up to 25 Off 5th locations north of the boarder over the next few years. Hudson’s Bay acquired Saks in November.
Prior to assuming his new post, Greller was group senior vice president of private-brand apparel, global sourcing and specialty for Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor.
