Footwear company Brown Shoe Company Inc announces the appointment of David G. Krueger to Senior Vice President-Corporate Real Estate.

In his new role, Krueger will grow and manage Brown Shoe's real estate portfolio of more than 1,300 retail locations throughout the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and Guam, including the Famous Footwear, Supermarket of Shoes and Factory Brand Shoes chains; Naturalizer concept and outlet stores; Via Spiga concept stores; and Etienne Aigner outlet stores.

In his 10 years with the company, Krueger has directed the store planning, construction, lease audit and real estate legal departments, most recently as Vice President-Real Estate.

“Moving forward, their real estate efforts will be focused on strengthening and refining their store portfolio to ensure they're providing the best retail options to the communities they serve, and that are consistently located where customer shops. With his strong planning background and leadership capabilities, David is an excellent choice to drive this effort,” said Joe Wood, President of Brown Shoe's Famous Footwear division.

Krueger replaces James Roe, who is retiring after 40 years at Brown Shoe.

“Jim has done a terrific job in this area for many years, and his contributions to the turnaround and real estate management of our Famous Footwear chain will serve as a model for future endeavors,” said Wood.

Brown Shoe, through its Wholesale divisions, owns and markets leading footwear brands including Naturalizer, LifeStride, Via Spiga, Nickels Soft, Connie and Buster Brown; it also markets licensed brands including Franco Sarto, Dr. Scholl's, Etienne Aigner, Bass and Carlos by Carlos Santana for adults, and Barbie, Bob-the-Builder and Disney character footwear for children.
