Kohl’s appoints new board director
US department store chain Kohl’s has appointed Wendy Arlin to its board of directors.
The move forms part of an ongoing board refreshment process at Kohl’s as the company looks to bring in “relevant, experienced” leaders.
With more than three decades of experience in corporate finance, financial reporting, oversight and accounting, Arlin recently served as chief financial officer at Bath & Body Works.
Prior to that, she was senior vice president, finance and corporate controller of L Brands where she led the corporate finance, financial reporting, accounting and financial shared services functions from 2005 to 2021.
Bath & Body Works chair Peter Boneparth said: “We are pleased to welcome Wendy to the board. Her deep financial, accounting and industry experience adds to the existing strength of the board. Wendy is an excellent addition to our Board as we continue to focus on supporting the company’s strategic growth plan and delivering shareholder value.”
Arkin added: “This is a brand and business that I deeply respect and I’m eager to serve the company and our shareholders during this dynamic time in the retail industry. I appreciate the warm welcome from the board and I look forward to working with the directors and the Kohl’s leadership team in the years ahead.”
