Macy's Inc's board of directors has elected Amy Hanson as senior vice president for property development, effective immediately. She will be based in Cincinnati and report to Macy's Inc Vice Chair Tom Cole.

Hanson, 49, previously was vice chairman and director of stores at Minneapolis-based Macy's North and led the transition as Macy's North was consolidated into the Macy's East division this spring. In her new role, she will oversee a range of corporate-level functions, including store design and construction, real estate, energy services, sustainability, licensed operations, non-merchandise purchasing and foodservice (including in-store restaurants).

"Amy is an outstanding leader with well-rounded experience in key business operations functions and a thorough understanding of our company's strategies," Cole said. "Going forward, she will guide our progress in improving the shopping experience for our customers and in operating more efficiently.

In addition, Amy's oversight of areas such as store construction, energy services and purchasing will allow our company to pursue a more holistic implementation of objectives and principles related to sustainability and sensitivity to the environment."

Prior to becoming vice chairman of Macy's North in July 2006, Hanson had served since July 2002 as president of The FACS Group, the Cincinnati-based Macy's Inc division now known as Macy's Credit and Customer Services.

Hanson, a 25-year Macy's Inc veteran, joined the company in 1983 and has held positions of increasing responsibility at the corporate office and FACS. She joined FACS in 1991 as group manager for planning and receivables before being promoted to senior vice president in 1997 and president of credit services in 2000. She was named the division's president in 2002.

Hanson is a native of Ottawa, OH. She and her husband, Frank, and two children will be relocating to Cincinnati.
