Thomas Kingsbury has resigned as senior executive vice president of Kohl’s Corp. to join Burlington Coat Factory as president and chief executive officer.
He succeeds Mark Nesci, who is retiring after 37 years with the off-price retailer. He became ceo in 2006 after Burlington was acquired for $2.1 billion and taken private by Bain Capital. Nesci will remain an equity investor in the company and serve as a senior adviser to its board.
