Kohl’s Corp. announced in a regulatory filing Wednesday that Chief Marketing Officer Greg Revelle is departing in June and Chief Merchandising Officer Doug Howe will leave immediately.
“Greg Revelle and Doug Howe are leaving Kohl’s to pursue other opportunities,” Kohl’s said in a statement. “We thank them for their contributions and wish them well. A search for the replacements is already underway. In the meantime, we have a deep bench of marketing and merchandising talent that will ensure the continued execution of our strategies.”
According to the filing, Kohl’s internally announced the exit of Revelle on May 12 and the exit of Howe on May 18.
Howe had been the off-mall retailer’s chief merchandising officer since 2018. Revelle has been chief marketing officer since 2017.
The exits come as over the past few months, activist investors Macellum Advisors GP, LLC and Engine Capital LP have called on Kohl’s to sell the business. Last week, Kohl’s investors rejected Macellum Advisors’ attempts to replace ten of its board directors.
