MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. --(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Kohl’s (NYSE: KSS) today announced that Bruce Besanko has decided to retire from Kohl’s at the end of the fiscal year and will step down from his position as Chief Financial Officer, effective November 1. At that time, Jill Timm, Kohl’s Executive Vice President of Finance, will be promoted to Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Besanko will remain in a Senior Advisor role until he departs the company to assist with the CFO transition and provide support for current company initiatives.

“I want to thank Bruce for his significant contributions to the company,” said Michelle Gass, Kohl’s CEO. “During his time at Kohl’s, he has added great value across many parts of the business and has further strengthened our overall finance organization.

“Jill is a seasoned financial executive at Kohl’s, having served in various financial leadership positions within the company for more than 20 years,” said Gass. “She’s been an invaluable partner to me, Bruce, and the entire leadership team supporting many of our top strategic initiatives. Jill also has been the key architect of our Operational Excellence strategy, which continues to be a critical priority for the company. I have great confidence in her ability to manage the financial operations of the enterprise and accelerate our future growth.”

“I am honored to take on the CFO role for Kohl’s,” said Timm. “It is a very exciting time for the company as we continue to evolve our strategic initiatives, create new opportunities for growth and drive value for our shareholders.”
