Retail

Macy’s

Macy’s Inc. announced that Paula Price, executive vice president and chief financial officer, has made the decision to leave the company as of May 31.

Price will continue in her current role until that date, and in order to support a well-ordered transition, she will remain an advisor to the company through November. An external search is underway for Price’s replacement.

Price has served in her current role with Macy’s since July 2018.

Nordstrom

Nordstrom Inc. announced the appointment of two new members to its board of directors: Jim Donald, co-chairman of Albertsons Companies, and Mark J. Tritton, president and CEO of Bed Bath & Beyond.

The company previously shared that board members Kevin Turner and Gordon Smith have chosen not to seek re-election at the expiration of their respective terms at the company’s annual shareholders meeting on May 20. Additionally, the board announced planned changes designed to enhance its corporate governance. This will include reducing the maximum size of the board to 10 from over the next two years and introducing a 10-year term limit for independent directors.

Nordstrom directors serve one-year terms and the company requires annual elections of all board members.

Technology

LocatorX

LocatorX, which provides accurate and flexible tracking technology to companies across a variety of industries, appointed former UPS chief financial officer (CFO) Kurt Kuehn to its board of directors.

The move came at the same time that the Atlanta-based company announced the close of its most recent round of fundraising, raising $6.6 million over the past year to support continued product development and expansion of operations in sales and marketing.

Kuehn was CFO at UPS for eight years, capping a 38-year career at the multinational package delivery and supply chain management company.

LocatorX technology enables brands and consumers to access an item’s current location and audit trail from its origin, protecting against theft, counterfeiting and product diversion while increasing consumer engagement with manufacturers.

Zebra Technologies

Zebra Technologies Corp. appointed Holly Tyson as chief human resources officer (CHRO), effective April 20.

In this role, Tyson will lead Zebra’s human resources organization, which includes responsibilities for global organizational development, talent acquisition, rewards and benefits, as well as culture strategies, among other talent-centric responsibilities. She succeeds Mike Terzich who is leaving the organization after a successful 28-year tenure, holding a multitude of leadership roles across the business, most recently serving as chief administrative officer.

Most recently, Tyson served as CHRO for Dick’s Sporting Goods, where she led the overall talent strategy for the company while ensuring that the culture, practices, policies and operations aligned with the strategic organizational priorities and values of the broader organization.

Zebra empowers the front line of business in retail and e-commerce, manufacturing, transportation and logistics, healthcare, public sector and other industries to achieve a performance edge. With more than 10,000 partners across 100 countries, it provides industry-tailored, end-to-end solutions that connect people, assets and data to help customers make business-critical decisions.
