Pep Boys Trims Divisions

Philadelphia The Pep Boys—Manny, Moe & Jack announced Tuesday that it has decreased its number of divisions from eight to six. The cuts come under a new company structure.

The company said one divisional VP is now responsible for all aspects of service, retail and commercial operations in each of the six divisions.

Similarly, where area directors were previously responsible for either service or retail for between 14 and 19 stores, an area director is now responsible for all lines of business for an average of nine stores.

“With this reorganization, our field leadership team now oversees less-expansive geographic areas, allowing them to build stronger relationships with store management, frontline associates and customers,” said Pep Boys CEO Mike Odell.
