CEO Gets the Boot at Western Retailer

R. Mark Syrstad is out as president and CEO of Arlington-based Sheplers, the world’s leading retailer of Western-style clothing. While the company didn’t elaborate, one official says Sheplers wants to do a “course correct” and get back to “more traditional Western wear.” In a 2008 interview with D CEO, Syrstad expressed his desire to move Sheplers beyond its traditional customer base to attract “fashion-forward” men and women.
