JCPenney Announces Two Senior Executive Appointments to Propel its Omnichannel Growth Strategy
"Mr. Amend and Mr. Robbins are two exceptional industry veterans who have a successful track record of creating enterprise inventory networks that enable brick-and-mortar and e-commerce to merge into one seamless shopping experience," said Marvin Ellison, chief executive officer for JCPenney. "Their backgrounds perfectly align with our long-term growth plan to become a world-class omnichannel retailer."
Under his leadership at The Home Depot, Amend is credited for leading the development of several groundbreaking omnichannel initiatives, which resulted in The Home Depot being recently recognized as the Internet Retailer of the Year for 2014 by Internet Retailer(R). Amend was the executive sponsor responsible for rolling out buy online pick-up in store; buy online, ship to store; and buy online, deliver from store. Amend also led the company's efforts to develop best in class mobile experiences. Prior to The Home Depot, Amend was chief technology officer for global online at Dell and deputy chief technology officer for BEA Systems. Amend will report to Ellison and succeeds Mike Rodgers, who has left the Company to pursue other interests.
These appointments follow the recent announcement of Mandy Ginsberg, chief executive officer of The Princeton Review and Tutor.com, who joined the JCPenney board of directors in July. To read the full announcement on Ginsberg's appointment, please visit jcpnewsroom.com.
