DSW has appointed former Shopko executive Mary Meixelsperger as CFO, effective May 1. Meixelsperger replaces Douglas Probst, who is retiring from DSW on the same day.
"We are pleased that Mary is joining the DSW team," said president and CEO Michael MacDonald. "Mary is a seasoned executive with a breadth of experiences in merger integration, strategic systems planning and implementation, financial analysis and tax planning. With her leadership, we will position DSW for continued growth and progress towards our strategic goals."
Meixelsperger joins DSW from Shopko, a regional discount store chain, where she held the roles of CFO, controller and treasurer for the last nine years. Prior to Shopko, she was the CFO for two nonprofit organizations from 1993 to 2004 and was the CFO for Worldmark Group, a private equity firm from 1986 to 1991. Meixelsperger started her career in public accounting at Arthur Young and Co. and she holds a bachelor of business administration degree with distinction from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Meixelsperger will start at DSW April 21, and will report directly to MacDonald.
