Sporting goods retailer Hibbett Sports Inc. announced Friday that Scott J. Bowman, SVP and CFO, is resigning effective April 26, 2019, to pursue another opportunity.
Jeff Rosenthal, president and CEO—who himself is stepping down—said, “On behalf of the board of directors and our leadership team, I would like to thank Scott for his contributions as CFO for more than six years. During his time at Hibbett, Scott helped drive company-wide efforts to create shareholder value through strategic initiatives and an acquisition that has improved the company’s competitive position. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Going forward, I am confident that the strength of our accounting and finance team will keep us moving forward while we search for Scott’s replacement.”
Bowman added, “I have accepted another opportunity that will put me closer to family, but I will remain with Hibbett through the end of April to assist with the transition. Being associated with this company has been a truly rewarding experience, and I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked with so many great people at Hibbett. I am confident that the company is on a good trajectory and will continue to strengthen its position among athletic specialty retailers.”
