Two big promotions at Hhgregg


Hhgregg continues to reshape its executive team.

The consumer electronics and appliance chain promoted Kevin Kovacs to CFO. He is assuming the role from Robert Riesbeck, who was recently appointed president and CEO. Since joining Hhgregg in 2009, Kovacs held the roles of VP/controller and director of tax and treasury

In other moves, Hhgregg promoted Sam Johnson to chief retail officer. Since joining Hhgregg in 2010, Johnson has served in the role of senior VP of stores.

In addition to his responsibility for store operations, customer relations, fine|lines and commercial sales, Johnson will assume responsibility for real estate and visual merchandising.

“As a result of the significant contributions Sam and Kevin have delivered in their time with Hhgregg, we are excited to promote them to roles of greater responsibility,” said Riesbeck. “Both will continue to perform as significant members of the senior leadership team. We look forward to their continued contribution to drive positive impacts as we achieve our growth and profitability goals.”

Hhgregg currently operates 226 stores in 20 states.
