Nashville-based speciality retail and branded company Genesco has appointed Tom George as its new chief financial officer.

He is expected to serve in the role until at least March 2024. He has been in the position on an interim basis since December 2020.

Earlier in his career, George spent nine years as chief financial officer of footwear company Deckers Brands, during which time the company doubled its revenue and increased its market capitalization fourfold.

“[George] has made significant contributions since joining Genesco late last year,” said Mimi E. Vaughn, board chair, president and chief executive of Genesco.

“He is an exceptional leader, and his strategic insight, strong financial leadership, and comprehensive knowledge of the footwear industry have been invaluable as we navigate through the end of pandemic.”
