Tuesday Morning Names Steven Becker CEO
December 14, 2015,
DALLAS-Steven R. Becker, Tuesday Morning’s chairman, has been named the specialty retailer’s CEO, effective immediately.
Becker has served as chairman since 2012 and led Tuesday Morning’s office of the chairman since Sept. 28. He succeeds Michael Rouleau, who retired at the end of September and has been serving as a consultant since then. Terry Burman, lead independent director, has become chairman, and Becker remains on the Tuesday Morning board.
“Steve has been directly involved with every facet of Tuesday Morning’s revitalization efforts, including knowledge of our people, a deep understanding of the business and a determination to execute on critical operational initiatives,” Burman said. “His passionate belief in the Tuesday Morning brand—together with his productive, engaged tenure as board chair and head of the office of the chairman—gives us further confidence in his ability to deliver sustained growth moving forward.”
Until recently, Becker was partner and co-founder of Becker Drapkin, L.P., a Dallas-based investment firm with interests in the retail sector. He also served as a board director of Hot Topic, the fashion retailer.
