Kohl’s Corp. is in late-stage talks to name Tom Kingsbury as CEO, the New York Times reported on Wednesday, citing two spokespersons familiar with the conversation.

Kingsbury was named interim CEO in December after Michelle Gass left the company to take the role of president of Levi Strauss & Co.

Kingsbury has been on Kohl’s board since 2021, when he joined as part of an agreement with the activist investor Macellum. His four decades of retail experience include leading Burlington Stores for over a decade through 2019.
