Bigger (and newer) will be better. Genesco, parent company of Johnston & Murphy, Trask and Journeys among other entities, plans to move into new corporate headquarters in Nashville, TN, in about a year. Located at 535 Marriott Drive, the offices will occupy approximately two thirds of the facility’s 310,000 square feet of space. In addition to the relocation, the company announced it will create new jobs and invest more than $30 million in Davidson County over the next five years.
“For the past 95 years, Genesco has been a proud partner of the Middle Tennessee community,” states Mimi Vaughn, President and CEO of Genesco. “We look forward to investing in our tremendously talented and dedicated employees, and the community, as we begin our next chapter of growth as a leading footwear-focused company. We would like to thank the State of Tennessee and TVA for their commitment and support with our new headquarters and expansion.”
“It is an exciting time for Genesco and our new facility will be a great place to work,” Vaughn adds. “Our new space will allow our shared services and operating divisions, including Journeys, Johnston & Murphy, and Genesco’s Licensed Brands—which include Levi’s Footwear, Dockers Footwear and Bass Footwear—to better serve our employees, vendors and customers, and facilitate our next wave of growth.”
Genesco’s corporate headquarters have been at 1415 Murfreesboro Road in Nashville since 1965. There are more than 800 employees currently at the corporate headquarters location.
