Hicks takes over from Stephen Wetmore, who is also stepping down as a member of the board.

Wetmore will act as an adviser to the retailer as honorary director until the end of 2020 to help ensure a smooth transition.

Hicks most recently served as president, Canadian Tire Retail, the company's largest business.
