In February 2003, Mr McInnes took charge as a third CEO of DJS since 1997. His predecessor MD Peter Wilkinson helped in repositioning the Company as an upmarket brand, focusing affluent shoppers. The restructuring plan carried out in 1999 consisted of securitisation of the $200M accounts receivables with a capital return of $80M. DJS decided to unwind the sale & leaseback arrangement on its landmark CBD stores in 2006 that it announced in 2000.
