US: Target's online president departs
The head of Target Corp's online business has left the company, the US discount retailer said yesterday (13 October).
It gave no further details, other than to say that Steve Eastman, president of Target.com, has left "to pursue other opportunities." However, his departure comes less than a month after the retail giant's website crashed as it launched the new Missoni for Target collection.
Eastman is the second key executive to leave Target this month, after chief marketing officer Michael Francis was named as the new president at JC Penney. Francis will be responsible for all merchandising, marketing, planning and allocation as well as product development and sourcing.
