This new position will provide general management and strategic leadership for all aspects of Red Wing Shoe Company’s footwear and leather manufacturing operations while leveraging our global manufacturing partnerships to drive achievement of business objectives and continuous improvement of people and processes.

We’re rich in history and tradition, but innovation drives us to deliver best-in-class product solutions, highly rated customer experiences, and meaningful employee engagement. Our current business state is solid under the guidance of a stable and strong executive leadership team. Our Guiding Principles of Living our Values, Honoring our Brands, Inspiring Our People, Centering on the Customer, and Preserving the Long Term Success and Legacy of Our Company are the foundation on which we build our future.
