Chief Operating Officer of Boot Barn Holdings Inc., Greg V. Hackman, has announced plans to retire this summer from the western apparel and footwear retailer.
Hackman first joined Irvine-based Boot Barn (NYSE: BOOT) in 2015 as the chief financial officer, soon after the company went public in late 2014 at around $16 a share.
“[He] continued to take on more functional responsibilities before being promoted to EVP, Chief Operating Officer in 2021,” Chief Executive Jim Conroy said in a statement. “During his tenure, our store count increased from 150 stores to nearly 350 stores, and our revenue has grown by more than $1 billion.”
Boot Barn has a current market cap of $2.3 billion with shares up 2.5% at $76.71 apiece during midday trading.
Hackman ends his retail career after almost 30 years in the industry with companies such as Hills Department Stores, Macy’s and Claire’s Stores Inc. in various finance leadership roles.
“[I] feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to partner with Jim in leading one of the fastest growing retail brands in the country,” Hackman said.
