A former executive at Meijer and Family Dollar has been named CFO at Academy Sports.

Michael Mullican,  42, joined Academy in February 2017 as Executive Vice President, General Counsel and managed legal, risk and compliance teams across the organization.

Prior to Academy, Michael served as the Managing Director of Aureus Health Services, a Meijer specialty pharmacy where he was responsible for leading the organization following the acquisition by Meijer.

"Michael's experience in both legal and finance make him perfectly suited to take on the CFO role at Academy," said J.K.
