ABILENE, Kan. — Alco Stores has promoted Brent Streit to SVP marketing and e-commerce.
Streit, a native of Downs, Kansas and a graduate of Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing, has more than 20 years of experience in retailing. In 2001 he joined Alco, then known as Duckwall-ALCO Stores Inc., as a buyer. Since then he has held increasingly responsible positions in supply chain management, marketing and business development.
Rich Wilson, president and CEO, commented, "Brent Streit is a key contributor to our team. Since we reset the merchandising approach of our 200-plus Alco stores in 2010, Brent has provided leadership for advertising, direct and indirect promotional media, social media, visual merchandising and brand strategy. He also spearheaded the development and recent launch of our ecommerce store at Alcostores.com. All these efforts are crucial to Alco's ongoing growth."
