Peggy Eskenasi, senior executive vice president of product development for Kohl’s Corp., is leaving the company to join a private equity company in New York after a decade-long tenure.
The departure is the second by a senior-level merchant at the Menomonee Falls, Wis.-based midtier department store in less than five months. It follows that of Donald Brennan, chief merchandising officer, in April. Asked about the search for Brennan’s replacement during Kohl’s second-quarter conference call two weeks ago, Kevin Mansell, chairman, president and chief executive officer, said the company was making “excellent progress” and that he continued to expect a successor would be named prior to the company’s Analyst Day at the end of October.
