Jacksonville, Fla. -- Stein Mart’s board of directors has appointed D. Hunt Hawkins and Brian R. Morrow to share the newly created office of the president. Both men will continue to report to CEO Jay Stein.
"Hunt and Brian have made significant contributions in the success of the company," said Stein. "Their promotions are a testament to their leadership that has built a team that has produced seven consecutive quarters of comp store gains, a dramatic departure from the achievements of past management, and reflect the confidence the board and I have in them."
Hawkins joined the company in 1994, and rose through the ranks. In 2011, he was named executive VP and COO.
Morrow joined the company in 2010 as executive VP and chief merchandising officer. Previously, he served as senior VP and general merchandising manager with Macy's North/Marshall Field's.
