Dick’s Sporting Goods was founded by Richard “Dick” Stack. Today, Edward Stack is the Chairman and CEO, and Joe Schmidt is the President and COO.
Dick’s Sporting Goods is a publicly traded company (NYSE: DKS). In 2011 they reported $5 billion in revenue, $421 million in operating income, $350 million in net income, $3 billion in assets, and $1.5 billion in equity.
When Richard ‘Dick’ Stack opened the first Dick’s in 1948, it was a simple bait and tackle shop. But by the mid 1950s his store had become successful enough that he was able to open a new store. Unlike the first, this one was not focused exclusively on tackle, and it expanded to include general sports merchandise as well.
In 1984, Dick Stack retired, and passed ownership of the company to his son Edward. Edward has been responsible for the expansion of Dick’s Sporting Goods, and grew the company from a two store business to the 525 locations it has today.
