Target Corp. said its board of directors elected Melanie Healey, a former group president of North America at The Procter & Gamble Co. as a director.
Healey’s tenure at P&G spanned 25 years during which she served in a variety of roles in North and South America. Her focus was “in marketing and in the health and personal-care businesses, including [serving as] group president, global feminine and health care,” Target said. Previously, Healy served in various roles at S.C. Johnson & Sons and Johnson & Johnson.
Brian Cornell, chairman and chief executive officer of Target, said Healy “has a track record of delivering growth, driving operational improvements and launching successful product innovations for globally recognized brands. She also has a history of building wellness brands, which will provide an important perspective as Target continues to elevate wellness as one of our signature categories.”
