Stein Mart’s chief financial officer, Gregory Kleffner, plans to retire from the company next spring.
Kleffner will continue in his current role until his successor is appointed. After that he will serve in an advisory role to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities. The company has retained an executive search firm to assist with an external search.
“On behalf of the entire board and management team, I’d like to thank Greg for his dedication and contributions during his more than nine-year career at Stein Mart,” said D. Hunt Hawkins, CEO, Stein Mart. “Greg has been an integral member of the senior executive group and has built strong teams in our finance, internal audit, investor relations, asset protection and credit card areas.”
