Dollar Tree has appointed Carrie Wheeler as a new independent director to the company’s board of directors.
Wheeler retired from TPG Global, a leading global investment firm, in 2017 after a 21-year career. During that time, she was a partner and head of TPG’s consumer and retail large cap private equity efforts and helped to grow and transform TPG’s investments in the sector, the company said. She also currently serves on the board of directors of multi-brand apparel retailer J. Crew Group, and previously served on the boards of numerous retailers, including Neiman Marcus and Petco.
“We are delighted that Carrie Wheeler is joining our board,” said Bob Sasser, Dollar Tree’s executive chairman. “As part of our multi-year effort to bring new perspectives and capabilities to our board, Carrie’s addition represents the fifth independent director joining our board since 2016. Carrie’s decades of knowledge and experience as both a leading investor and board member in retail and consumer businesses is a welcomed addition to our board.”
