HOUSTON — Stage Stores said Thursday it has made Michael Glazer’s role as interim president and CEO a permanent one.
Glazer, a board member for the chain, was named interim chief following Andy Hall’s resignation in March.
According to Stage chairman William Montgoris, Glazer’s familiarity with the company’s growth and expansion strategy helped him secure the permanent role. “It became clear the company and its shareholders would be best served by making his appointment permanent," Montgoris said.
Glazer previously served as president and CEO of Mattress Giant Corp., a position he resigned after the company’s acquisition by Mattress Firm. He has also served as president and CEO of KB Toys Inc.
