Oct '05
Hal N. Pennington, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tennessee based branded footwear & accessories marketer Genesco, announced the promotion of Robert J. Dennis to executive vice president and chief operating officer of Genesco Inc, effective immediately. In his new position, Dennis will have oversight responsibility for all the Company's operating divisions, including Journeys, Journeys Kidz, Underground Station, Hat World, Johnston & Murphy and licensed brands.

Dennis, who became Chief Executive Officer of Hat World Corporation in 2001, was named Senior Vice President of Genesco in June 2004 following the Company's acquisition of Hat World in April 2004.

"During his career, Bob Dennis has focused successfully on helping high potential retailers to recognize and make the most of their opportunities," said Pennington. "I am confident that his strategic skills, in combination with the proven expertise of Genesco's highly talented operational leadership team, will be valuable assets as we work to sustain and enhance the Company's forward momentum and achieve their goals for growth."

A 21-year retail veteran, Dennis' experience includes a senior position with Asbury Automotive, a $4.5 billion retail auto group, from 1997 to 1999. From 1984 to 1997, he was a partner with McKinsey & Company, an international consulting firm, where he led the North American Retail Practice. Dennis holds a master of business administration degree, with distinction, from the Harvard Business School, with a focus on consumer marketing, and bachelor's and master's degrees in biochemical engineering and organic chemistry, with honors, from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
