Coleman McDonald

CEO

I have the best job in the world – leading a dedicated team of professionals that help keep workers safe and employers compliant. I joined Work Wear Safety Shoes in 2016 as President/CEO. Before that I was a corporate consultant, and I also had the privilege to serve 11 years as a Fighter Pilot in the Air Force. I’m a Fort Worth native and a proud graduate of Baylor University. Let me know how Work Wear Safety Shoes can help you manage your safety shoe program.

Matthew Hudson

CXO

As the Chief Experience Officer, I make sure that anything that impacts the Customer’s Experience with our company is remarkable every customer – every time. I have over 30 years in retail, myself and love the fact that we are focused on the wellness of our customers and not just their safety. I’m a member of the ASTM Committee (F13) on footwear, have authored 4 books on retail and have a PhD in Organizational Behavior. But what’s really important is my family. I have a son (much smarter than me) who is a controller of an oil and gas firm in Texas and 3 elementary aged daughters.

DIRECTOR OF SAFETY & WELLNESS

My role at Work Wear Safety Shoes allows me to spend a lot of time on the ground with our customers. I enjoy learning about their various workplace environments and the types of hazards their employees are exposed to daily. We partner with these companies to select the proper safety footwear to protect employees from injuries, and to protect organizations from compliance-related liability issues. This has been my passion for more than 20 years. When not working I am an avid cyclist and fisherman.
