Hudson’s Bay President Steps Down

Hudson’s Bay Company said that Alison Coville will step down as president of Hudson’s Bay and Home Outfitters, effective March 1, 2019.

“We are grateful to Alison for her dedication and contributions to Hudson’s Bay. Over her long tenure with the company she served in a number of roles with increasing responsibility while successfully maintaining a constant focus on serving the Canadian consumer. We wish her well in her future endeavors,” said Helena Foulkes, CEO, HBC.

The company has retained an executive search firm to recruit a new president of Hudson’s Bay to further enhance the business’ strategies and drive its next phase of growth. Hudson’s Bay will be led by key executives from the HBC team, under the direction of Foulkes, until a permanent successor is found.
