Macy’s has announced the appointment of Torrence Boone, vice president, global client partnerships at Google, to its board of directors, effective December 12, 2019. Macy’s is a leading retailer, with fiscal 2018 sales of $24.971 billion and approximately 130,000 employees. The company operates around 680 department stores and 190 specialty stores.

At Google, Boone is responsible for driving the company’s strategies and partnerships across a portfolio of the world’s largest global advertisers, spanning the tech, health, beauty, and consumer packaged goods industries. Boone leads a team focused on large scale global strategic partnerships that deploy Google products and platforms to achieve breakthrough marketing results. Boone also serves as co-lead of the NYC office and a member of the company’s global business hiring committee, Macy’s said in a press release.

Boone is currently VP, global client partnerships at Google, and has been with the company for ten years. Prior to Google, he held senior agency leadership positions at WPP & Publicis. Before his career in advertising, he was a senior manager at Bain & company, where he advised a broad range of clients on corporate and business strategy, mergers and acquisitions, new product development and interactive strategy. Boone is a former board member for Finish Line, a leading national specialty retailer, a board member of Pond5, a leading online marketplace for creative assets and a board member of Effie Worldwide. Boone holds a bachelor’s degree in economics, with honours, from Stanford University, and a MBA from Harvard Business School.

“Boone’s multigenerational knowledge and global view of the consumer will be essential to Macy’s during a time when we’re hyper focused on strengthening our customer base. His expertise in advertising, marketing and technology will add value as we continue to balance the art and science in our marketing strategies. In addition, his work as an advocate for ethnic diversity and inclusion also make him a great fit for the Macy’s board of directors,” Jeff Gennette, chairman and chief executive officer of Macy’s said.

“Macy’s is an established leader in the retail industry, and I am excited to serve on the board of directors during this dynamic and exciting time. I look forward to working with the other directors and management team to contribute to Macy’s’ growth,” Boone said.

With the addition of Boone, the Macy’s board of directors will comprise 12 members. Boone will serve on the nominating and governance committee.
