Kohl’s has not had a chief marketing officer since Julie Gardner departed the chain in November 2012. Gass has overseen the marketing functions.

We are excited to have him lead our efforts in driving omnichannel traffic, building strong customer engagement and leveraging data-driven insights to create powerful customer interactions.”
