Payless’ new leadership

Payless ShoeSource has appointed Mark Jeffery as MD of Payless Shoes Australia. Resource-16

Jeffery will provide oversight and leadership to Payless Shoes as the company continues to build upon its 143 existing store locations in Australia.

The company fell in administration in September last year and was purchased by its US namesake, Payless ShoeSource following the closure of close to 100 stores.

There are now 143 stores across Australia. Jeffery was most recently a member of the executive leadership team at Big W where he held various senior leadership positions including supply chain, operations and merchandising of hard goods.

“We are excited to welcome Mark Jeffery to the Payless team,” said Steve Gish, executive VP, retail operations and franchising for Payless ShoeSource.

“Mark brings significant global retail operations experience and a proven track record of delivering strong financial performance and creative business solutions. We look forward to his many contributions as we seek to grow Payless in Australia,” said Gish.
