Target names GM exec to new role


Jacqueline Hourigan Rice will join Target Dec. 1 as the retailer’s SVP of risk and compliance after holding a similar role at General Motors.

In her new role Rice will assume some responsibilities previously held by Ann Scovil who retired in March as vp of assurance, risk and compliance. Rice will also have responsibility for corporate security and Target’s suppliers. She will report directly to Target CEO Brian Cornell who joined the company in August.

Her appointment follows other recent moves the retailer has taken to bolster security following a massive data breach last Christmas. In June, the company named former GM executive Brad Maiorino as chief information security officer to report to Bob DeRodes who was named CIO in April to replace Beth Jacob.
