The National Retail Federation (NRF) announced today that Macy’s Executive Chairman Terry Lundgren has been elected chairman of the NRF board of directors. Lundgren replaces former HSNi CEO Mindy Grossman, who resigned from the board after leaving retail to head Weight Watchers. In addition, four new members have been elected to the board:
- Sam’s Club President and CEO John Furner
- QVC Inc. President and CEO Mike George
- Total Wine & More CEO Adam Orvos
- Petco CEO Brad Weston
“These new directors represent the breadth of this diverse industry,” said NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay. “They will provide invaluable insight and leadership not only on the future of retail, but also NRF’s role in advocating for retailers of all sizes in Washington. As chairman, Terry is an industry veteran who will provide sound guidance in all aspects of our mission to serve as the voice of the retail industry.”
The NRF has recently been advocating in Washington against the proposed border adjustment tax, saying it would drive up prices for consumers and cost the economy jobs.
