“Ernie Herrman's proven, successful track record, leadership abilities, strategic vision, discipline and focus are all qualities that make him absolutely the right choice for CEO. Ernie has decades of experience as an off-price merchant. He has been instrumental to our company's success, including our continued international growth with our expansion into continental Europe, bringing Marshalls to Canada, and intent to acquire Trade Secret in Australia, in addition to developing our deep bench of off-price leaders and senior management. He will be a tremendous leader as we continue to drive the profitable growth of this company in the near and long term,” said Meyrowitz.

Herrman commented, “I am convinced that we are in an excellent position to grow to be a $40 billion company and beyond. The succession plan that the Board has established gives me great confidence that we will have a seamless transition. I look forward to continuing to work with Carol Meyrowitz, and am pleased that the Company will continue to benefit from her expertise. We have a highly talented management team and an organization that I believe is the best in the business. TJX is a great company, with Associates across the globe dedicated to our value mission, and, most importantly, a culture anchored by our integrity. I am excited and energized about the future as we continue to bring value around the world.”

Herrman has been President of The TJX Companies since January 2011. He has extensive leadership and off-price experience, having been with TJX since 1989.
