Today we announced the appointment of Chris Granger as president of our Sears Home Services (SHS) business effective immediately. Mr. Granger previously held the role of vice president and general manager of Sears Home Services and has been a valued member of our Company for nearly 20 years. He has built strong relationships across Sears Holdings and demonstrated great leadership over that time.
Former SHS President Sean Skelley will be departing after a brief transition period to focus on other personal and business interests. “I am proud of what the Sears Home Services team achieved during my time with the business. It has been a great experience and a pleasure to work with such dedicated individuals. I am sure the business will continue to strengthen under Chris’ leadership and I wish him, the SHS team and the rest of Sears Holdings all the very best in the future,” said Mr. Skelley.
“Our SHS business has enhanced its profitability during Sean’s time with the company and it is well positioned to be a pillar of growth going forward. We thank him for his contributions to our Company and wish Sean well in the future,” said Sears Holdings Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Edward S. Lampert.
