John McPhee named Sam Edelman president
McPhee joins Caleres from Herman Miller Retail, where he served as president and chief operating officer since 2010.
Prior to Miller Retail, he was president of Design Within Reach, before it was acquired by Herman Miller.
In this new role, McPhee will work with founder Sam Edelman to help build the company into a premium brand. The new president will be focusing on key areas such as finance, inventory management, and retail operations, while Edelman will focus on creating product and marketing, according to a press release.
“With Sam and John we now have a winning blend of complementary skills for the Sam Edelman brand,” said Diane Sullivan, CEO, president, and chairman of Caleres.
“I am thrilled that John is joining us and look forward to the momentum that the combination of John and Sam as well as the rest of Sam’s team will bring to our business.”
“John is just the partner I have been looking for,” said Edelman. “Not only does he have deep knowledge from working within a public company, but he also brings entrepreneurial experience so essential to keeping pace with our consumer. Working together, I anticipate additional success as I trust his business sense and commitment to brand integrity.”
