Recently, Cabela’s Inc. found a new President in Scott K. Williams.
Cabela’s Inc., the Nebraska-based outdoor retail icon founded in 1961, named a new President earlier this month.
According to a Cabela’s press release, Scott K. Williams took over the role of President on February 9. This new role comes after his former responsibilities as Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. Mr. Williams will still report to the company’s CEO, Tommy Millner.
“Scott has made a tremendous contribution to Cabela’s over the past five years, and his wealth of commercial and marketing experience has been an invaluable asset to the Company. We continue to take action to align our organization around Vision 2020, through which we will focus on serving our core customers and creating value for our shareholders, and Scott’s appointment as President is an important step in that process,” Mr. Millner said in the press release. “We look forward to benefiting from Scott’s leadership and strategic expertise as we execute on our strategy.”
Mr. Williams is no stranger to corporate leadership. His former positions include roles with Fanatics, Inc., an online retailer of licensed team and league apparel, Walmart Stores, Inc. and OfficeMax Incorporated. He has been with Cabela’s since 2011.
“Cabela’s is an outstanding company with a strong brand, a solid financial foundation, and perhaps the most loyal and engaged customers of any national retailer, and I am honored to be named President,” Mr. Williams said.
“I look forward to working with our team of tireless and dedicated outfitters to drive progress towards our goal of being the world’s best omni-channel retailer, while driving improved performance in both revenue growth and profitability.”
