Don Watros, the secret weapon behind Richard Baker’s burgeoning $7.5 billion Hudson’s Bay Co. retail conglomerate, is about to become more visible.
Watros, currently chief operating officer, will step up to president of HBC on Feb. 1, reflecting his deepening involvement in the operations and the instrumental role he’s played in the Toronto-based retailer’s business integrations, its initial public offering and buying spree — Saks Fifth Avenue in November, Hudson’s Bay in 2008 and Lord & Taylor in 2006.
