During his tenure, our store count increased from 150 stores to nearly 350 stores, and our revenue has grown by more than $1 billion. He has had a profound impact on the evolution of the company and, more importantly, on the personal and career development of many executives. Greg intends to retire in June of this year after completing the transition of his responsibilities to other executives within the company. Greg will leave a lasting legacy on Boot Barn, his team and on me personally.”

I will miss the company and the entire team but reflect on my eight years with Boot Barn fondly.”
