Target Corp. continues to shore up its technology team.
The retailer on Monday said it had made three external senior-level hires who will be responsible for leading teams across information technology, e-commerce and digital products.
Jim Fisher was named senior vice president of infrastructure and operations for Target Technology Services, where he will oversee the company’s technical infrastructure and operations. During his 35-year career, Fisher has held positions at The Home Depot USA Inc., Macy’s Inc. and IBM Corp. Prior to joining Target, Fisher was senior vice president of global infrastructure operations at First Data Corp., where he was responsible for security engineering and operations, database and data administration, asset management and IT facilities.
Alan Wizemann was named vice president of target.com and mobile product, where he will oversee digital product teams. For the past two years, Wizemann had been consulting with Target and leading various product teams, including Target’s mobile coupon app, Cartwheel. Prior to consulting for Target, Wizemann founded ShopIgniter, an enterprise social commerce and marketing platform, and also worked with several other start-ups.
David Weissman was named president of DermStore, based in El Segundo, Calif., which Target acquired last year. The skin-care e-commerce site has allowed Target to expand its share of the online beauty market under the online name DermStore.com.
Weissman was previously executive vice president, e-commerce and omnichannel at BCBG Max Azria Group Inc. He also held several senior-level positions during his 10-year tenure at GSI Commerce Inc.
“At Target, we’ve said one of our top priorities is accelerating our digital transformation, and these new hires are a signal of our commitment to that effort,” said Jodeen Kozlak, chief human resources officer of Target.
The appointments follow a number of other recent external senior-level hires, including Brad Maiorino, senior vice president and chief information security officer; Peter Glusker, senior vice president, new business integration and operations, and Kristi Argyilan, senior vice president, media and guest engagement.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
