Store Manager: Meredith Shows
Meredith, a Jackson native and tenured retail manager, joins us after years of retail experience with Brooks Brothers and Buckle. Success throughout her career has come through a passion for building customer relationships and motivating her teams to focus on store goals and personal development. In her free time, Meredith enjoys the outdoors, boating on the local reservoir, or skeet shooting on her family’s farm.
Fishing Manager: Payne Cook
Payne recently relocated to Jackson from Tallahassee with his best friend “Bob,” a jet-black English Cocker Spaniel. He has a background in Forestry and Wildlife Management, as well as outside sales experience. Payne grew up hunting and fishing from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the forgotten coast of North Florida, where he chased triple tail, trout and redfish. He also loves everything to do with bird dogs. Payne is very excited to have this opportunity and can’t wait to share his passion for the outdoors with our Orvis customers.
