SEATTLE — Six months after Sally Jewell was picked to be Interior Secretary, Seattle-based Recreational Equipment, Inc. has chosen a new CEO.
REI board members say Stritzke brings experience in retail operations and building lifestyle brands. He’ll begin his new post in October.
In February, President Barack Obama picked Sally Jewell to lead the U.S. Department of Interior. In April, Jewell was confirmed by the Senate and left the consumer-owned cooperative.
