Target Corporation announced the addition of three new external senior-level hires, who will have responsibility for leading teams across information technology, e-commerce and digital products.
Jim Fisher joins Target as senior vice president, Infrastructure and Operations, Target Technology Services, where he will oversee Target’s technical infrastructure and operations.
Jim’s 35-year career has included roles at organizations including The Home Depot, Macy’s and IBM. Immediately before Target, Jim was senior vice president of Global Infrastructure Operations at First Data Corporation. He was responsible for security engineering and operations, database and data administration, asset management and IT facilities.
Alan Wizemann joins Target as vice president, Target.com and Mobile Product, where he will oversee digital product teams. For the past two years, Alan had been consulting with Target and leading various product teams, including Target’s mobile coupon app Cartwheel.
Prior to Target, Alan founded ShopIgniter, a popular enterprise social commerce and marketing platform, and also worked with several other startups. David Weissman joins Target as president of DermStore, based in El Segundo, Calif., which Target acquired last year.
David was previously at BCBG Max Azria Group Inc., where he was executive vice president, e-commerce and omnichannel. David also held several senior-level positions during his 10-year tenure at GSI Commerce Inc.
“At Target, we’ve said one of our top priorities is accelerating our digital transformation, and these new hires are a signal of our commitment to that effort,” said Jodee Kozlak, chief human resources officer, Target. “Jim, David and Alan are proven leaders who we believe will help Target deliver great new experiences for our guests, whether in stores, online or on the go.”
These announcements come after a number of other recent external senior-level hires, including: Brad Maiorino, senior vice president and chief information security officer; Peter Glusker, senior vice president, New Business Integration and Operations; and Kristi Argyilan, senior vice president, Media and Guest Engagement.
Minneapolis-based Target Corporation serves guests at 1,916 stores – 1,789 in the United States and 127 in Canada – and at Target.com. Since 1946, Target has given 5 percent of its profit through community grants and programs; today, that giving equals more than $4 million a week.
