Anyone know why Chris left the company? It has been so hush-hush that it really makes me curious. Did it have anything to do with no raises next year? We all knew why Peter Bonaparth left but with Chris is was just a voice mail saying that after all these years, he is no longer with the company.

Thank goodness is all I can say!
I just did a search to see if he was still with the company (how I happened on your post to see he left). I was thinking of applying for a position however would not work for that company (again) unless he were no longer there.

Many people I know worked for him and the one thing I heard regularly was, "I never learned anything from him." When a VP travels stores you are usually able to pick up at least one great piece of wisdom from their visit. But nothing from him, ever!
He was horrible and my guess is he got insight that he would be let go soon.

I never met him but my manager thought he hung the moon. I personally was ready for a change and now we have a new guy that worked his way up in Foot Locker. He seems good and asks a lot about what the managers think need changing and then will call the buyers and ask why things aren't different. I guess we will see what happens.

To those of you who did not like to work for Chris Daiss, and, as you put it, "never learned anything from him," you all will be glad to know that the best that could have happened to him was to leave your company. He landed a great executive job with a trendiest, and most successful clothing company--even better than Nine West. I guess your manager in Dallas was right, Chris Daiss really "hung the moon."
