The energy of our company was undeniable as Macy’s kicked off its annual Big Meeting on March 23, 2017. The meeting was particularly momentous as it opened with executive chairman and former CEO, Terry Lundgren, closed with new CEO and president, Jeff Gennette, and revealed the new brand purpose and corporate strategy.
In mid-June, Macy’s, Inc. announced that Terry Lundgren will transition his CEO position to Jeff Gennette in the first quarter of 2017. At that time, Lundgren will continue as executive chairman and work side-by-side with Gennette, named as president and CEO.
