Caleres, a footwear company, has announced John McPhee will join the company as the president of the Sam Edelman brand, reporting directly to Sam Edelman. McPhee joins Caleres from Herman Miller Retail, where he served as president and chief operating officer since 2010. McPhee was president of Design Within Reach before it was acquired by Herman Miller. 
 
McPhee will partner with Sam to continue building Sam Edelman as a premium brand and assisting in taking it to the next level. McPhee brings substantial experience across multiple industries, including footwear, in his 35-year-long career. McPhee will focus on the key areas of finance, inventory management, and retail operations. This will allow Sam to focus on creating exceptional product and marketing. 
 
"With Sam and McPhee we now have a winning blend of complementary skills for the Sam Edelman brand," Diane Sullivan, CEO, president, and chairman of Caleres, said in a press release. "I am thrilled that McPhee is joining us and look forward to the momentum that the combination of McPhee and Sam as well as the rest of Edelman's team will bring to our business."   
 
"McPhee is just the partner I have been looking for," Sam Edelman said. "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." 
 
"Sam is an icon in the shoe industry," McPhee said. "I am excited about collaborating with him and working with the Sam Edelman team to drive continued success through a relentless focus on operational excellence, superior product, and deep consumer connection."
