Target names CEO

Thursday, July 31, 2014 - Updated: 10:08 AM

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Target has hired Pepsi executive Brian Cornell as its new chairman and CEO as it looks to recover from a huge data breach and troubles in Canada.

Cornell replaces interim CEO John Mulligan, who is chief financial officer for the Minneapolis company. Mulligan stepped into the interim CEO post in May when Target Corp.'s Gregg Steinhafel resigned following a large data breach in the runup to Christmas.

Cornell, 55, most recently served as CEO of PepsiCo Americas Foods. Prior to that, he was CEO and president of Sam's Club of Wal-Mart International and CEO of Michaels Stores Inc.

PepsiCo Inc. said in a statement Thursday that it expects to announce Cornell's successor soon.

Target said that Cornell's top priorities will be to ramp up its performance and press forward with its evolution into a retailer that seamlessly incorporates online and brick-and-mortar experiences for its shoppers.

Target is looking to start anew after announcing in December a data breach in which hackers stole millions of customers' credit- and debit-card records.
