Lowe’s names new president for Canadian stores

Lowe’s has announced the appointment of Don Stallings as the president of Lowe’s Canada, effective immediately. Stallings will replace Doug Robinson, who resigned for personal reasons, the company said.

Stallings will report to Larry Stone, Lowe’s president and chief operating officer, who is headquartered in Mooresville, N.C.

Stallings joined Lowe’s in 1994 and has served as district manager, merchandising vp and most recently as regional vp-operations for Lowe’s south central division, based in Houston.

In a prepared statement, Lowe’s said it is still on track to open six stores in Canada by the end of the 2007 fiscal year.
