Big 5 Sporting Goods Corporation, a leading sporting goods retailer, announced that Boyd O. ("Bud") Clark has been appointed Senior Vice President, Buying, effective August 1, 2011. Thomas J. Schlauch, who has served in that role for 19 years, has resigned from the position effective August 1.

Mr. Clark brings 35 years of retail experience, including 30 years as a buyer or merchandise manager. Mr. Clark has served in the Company's Buying Department since 1992, and as Vice President, Buying, for the last 12 years. Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Clark was a buyer and divisional merchandise manager at another regional retailer and an independent manufacturer sales representative in the sporting goods industry.

Steven G. Miller, the Company's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are excited to have Bud lead our buying and merchandising team as we continue our efforts to align our product offering with today's consumer. With his wealth of experience and as a highly respected buyer in our industry, he has an ideal background to direct Big 5 Sporting Goods' buying and merchandising programs. I am confident that Bud will be instrumental as we move forward with our business plan to deliver profitable growth."

Mr. Schlauch has served Big 5 Sporting Goods in various capacities for 44 years. The Company intends to enter into an agreement with him under which he will provide transition services and assist in special projects for the Company.

Mr. Miller stated, "We are grateful to Tom for all of his contributions to our company over the past 44 years. During his tenure, we have grown our store base from just 11 stores in California to 396 stores in 12 states, and have grown annual revenue to nearly $900 million. I am pleased at the prospect of Tom continuing to assist us through this transition and being available to engage in special projects as we move forward under new leadership in our Buying Department."
