Nordstrom Adds Donald, Tritton To Board Of Directors

Nordstrom has appointed two new members to its board of directors: Jim Donald, co-chairman of Albertsons board of directors and Mark Tritton, president and CEO of Bed Bath & Beyond.

Donald’s more than 45-year retail career began in Florida with Publix Supermarkets and took him to his most recent role as CEO at Albertsons. Previously he served as CEO of the Haggen grocery chain and as CEO of Starbucks.

As president and CEO of Bed Bath & Beyond, Tritton is responsible for accelerating the company’s ongoing business transformation. Previously, he was the evp/chief merchandising officer of Target. In 2009, Tritton served as evp/president of Nordstrom Product Group (NPG), Nordstrom’s private label collection.

“We’re pleased to welcome both Jim and Mark to the Nordstrom board of directors. Their wealth of knowledge and experience in the retail sector will be invaluable as we look toward the future and how we can continue to evolve and improve the customer experience,” said Brad Smith, chairman of the Nordstrom board. “We’re fortunate to be able to leverage Mark’s previous brand, consumer behavior and operational experience at Nordstrom and as a leader with some of the world’s most respected brands. Jim’s proven track record of leading large companies through complex and challenging environments is also valued, especially during this unprecedented moment in time.”
