JCPenney has announced that W. Paul Jones, a retail industry veteran with more than 30 years of department store and specialty retailing experience, was elected to its Board of Directors. Jones served as chief executive officer of Payless ShoeSource, retiring in 2017, and brings extensive leadership, merchandising, and operations proficiency to JCPenney.

“Paul’s areas of expertise are highly complementary to the company’s focus on delivering an exceptional shopping experience to our customers. In addition to his impressive omni-channel experience, Paul brings a wealth of merchandise and marketing insight, and I am delighted to welcome him to the JCPenney board,” Ron Tysoe, chairman of the JCPenney Board of Directors said in a press release.

“I am proud and excited to join the JCPenney Board of Directors. This is an iconic American retailer with an incredible history and a strong and ambitious team at every level of the organisation. I am looking forward to working with and contributing to the future growth of JCPenney,” Jones said.

Jones was CEO of Payless ShoeSource from 2012 until 2017 during which time Payless was one of the largest footwear retailers operating over 4,300 stores globally. While there, Jones was responsible for international store growth across more than 30 countries and the development of omni-channel business capabilities and customer experience. Jones’ prior career highlights include serving in senior leadership and merchandising roles at Kohl’s Department Stores from 1997 to 2004, and at May Department Stores where he started his retail career in 1986 and served for over 11 years.

Jones holds a bachelor’s degree in business, finance and economics from Mount Saint Mary’s University, and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Oregon. (GK)
