J. C. Penney Company Inc announced that Ken C. Hicks has resigned from his position as president and chief merchandising officer, effective July 6, 2009. Mr. Hicks has accepted the position of CEO with a publicly traded specialty retailer. JCPenney will conduct an executive search for Mr. Hicks' successor. In the interim, Myron E. (Mike) Ullman, III, chairman and chief executive officer, will assume Mr. Hicks' responsibilities.

Mr. Hicks, 56, has held his current position at JCPenney since 2005. He joined the Company in 2002 as president and chief operating officer of JCPenney's stores and merchandise operations, after having served as president of Payless ShoeSource Inc (now known as Collective Brands, Inc.). He is also a member of JCPenney's Board of Directors, and will resign from that position on July 6th.

"Through Ken's strong merchandising and marketing leadership, we have solidified our position in the hearts and minds of millions of customers across the country as the shopping destination for great style and quality at very affordable prices," said Mr. Ullman.

"JCPenney's Board of Directors and Associates are grateful for Ken's dedicated service and contributions to JCPenney's success and wish him the best of luck in his new position. We have a strong leadership team in place and look forward to adding to it in the near future with a worthy successor to Ken."

Mr. Hicks said, "It has been a tremendous privilege to have worked with the great retail team at JCPenney to reclaim its leadership position within the industry. While I am very excited about my new opportunity, I am proud of the strong position that JCPenney is now in for its future success."
