Target Corporation has appointed Mike McNamara as the executive vice president and chief information officer.

As the company’s top technology leader, McNamara will further advance Target’s digital transformation and help Target become a leading omnichannel retailer.

Target Chairman and CEO, Brian Cornell said, “Technology is critical for Target’s future success. So finding the right leader for this role was one of my absolute top priorities. Mike has been a driving force for technology innovation throughout his career.”

McNamara will join Target from UK-based Tesco PLC, where he worked for more than 15 years. He was instrumental in modernizing and advancing Tesco’s IT and supply chain worldwide, which helped establish Tesco as an e-commerce pioneer that’s now one of the world’s largest online grocers.

In his new role at Target, McNamara will have oversight of the company’s technology team and operations, including information security, and will help shape enterprise strategy as a member of Target’s leadership team.

McNamara said, “Tesco is a world class brand and I’m grateful for the time I spent there. Looking ahead, I am thrilled to join Target at a time when Brian and the leadership team are intensifying their investment in technology and prioritizing its role in Target’s future success. I have long admired Target as a retailer and its legacy of putting customers first. To be part of an organization like Target and help shape the future of its technology and omnichannel strategy was a dream opportunity for me.” (GK)
