Changes in Management Structure and Key Personnel
Over the course of the past decade, Gordon Reid has gradually been relinquishing direct control of Giant Tiger. In 1999, he resigned the presidency of Giant Tiger in favour of Jeff York, an executive with ten years’ experience at the company. In October 2010, Reid stepped down as chief executive officer of Giant Tiger, in favour of Andy Gross, a twenty-five year veteran with the chain, who started working as a buyer when there were fewer than thirty stores. Gross had, by this time, already inherited the presidency from Jeff York. Reid retains his post as chairman of the board.
