New leadership announced at Sports Authority

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Sports Authority announced that Darrell Webb has been named as interim CEO of the company, replacing David Campisi who is resigning as CEO and president of the company. 

As previously reported by Retailing Today, Webb currently serves as the chairman and CEO of Jo-Ann Stores. Webb previously has held senior positions at The Kroger Company, Fred Meyer Stores and Quality Food Centers. Webb will retain his position as chairman of Jo-Ann Stores while serving as Interim CEO of Sports Authority. 

 “As a life-long sports and outdoor enthusiast, I am extremely excited about joining the Sports Authority team and I am looking forward to the positive contributions I can make to the Company’s already strong market position,” said Webb.

I wonder if Sports Authority

I wonder if Sports Authority has an in house leadership training program to groom a new CEO. Though Webb is a great leader and will be a competent interim CEO, they need to promote someone from inside the company who knows the company inside out.
