Retail chain Kmart Holding Corp has named James Donlon as its new chief financial officer and senior vice-president, and John Goodman as chief apparel officer.

Donlon, the former AG vice-president of motoring company DaimlerChrysler, will be Kmart's first CFO since emerging from bankruptcy.

Goodman, an 11-year veteran of Gap Inc, joins fellow ex-Gap employee Lisa Schultz, who joined Kmart as chief creative officer in September.

"The hiring of these two experienced and successful executives continues to strengthen our senior management team," Kmart CEO Julian Day said.
