ROCKFORD, Mich., Aug. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolverine Worldwide (NYSE: WWW) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jodi K. Watson to the position of President, Consumer Direct, reporting to Blake W.

Commenting on the appointment, Krueger stated, "Jodi is a consumer-centric executive with a proven track record of success.  She is an excellent leader and a student of the industry, but most importantly, she is passionate about our consumers and our brands.  For the fast-changing, global retail environment in which we compete, Jodi is the right leader at the right time.

"Wolverine Worldwide is committed to expanding its brands' direct-to-consumer footprint around the world.  To win in today's global marketplace, lifestyle brands must build deep and emotional connections with their consumers, and there is no better place to build and foster those relationships than in our stores and on our websites."

"The opportunities ahead for Wolverine Worldwide are limitless – our portfolio is the best in the industry, and our platforms are second-to-none," stated Watson.  "It has been a privilege to be a part of the Company through such a transformational period.  I look forward to working with Blake, our industry-leading management team, and the entire organization as we enter a new era of opportunity for the Company."

Watson has more than 25 years of experience in the industry.  Before joining Wolverine, she was Chief Marketing Officer for Bag, Borrow or Steal, an innovative marketing leader in eCommerce.  Before that, Watson was Vice President of Direct Marketing Services for Williams-Sonoma Inc.
