PLANO , Texas — Allen Questrom, having stepped down from his leadership positions and worked with incoming chairman and CEO Myron (Mike) Ullman since Dec. 1, officially retired from JCPenney yesterday.
"Allen has led a remarkable turnaround at JCPenney, and he has been the catalyst for the successful repositioning of the company's department store and catalog/Internet business during the past four years. Allen leaves the legacy of a strong management team and solid foundation for JCPenney's growth," said Ullman.
In thanking Questrom for his service, the JCPenney Board of Directors said: "We are fortunate to have had a leader of Allen Questrom's stature at JCPenney during this important time in the company's history. Allen reinvigorated the organization, significantly improved JCPenney's customer franchise, and strengthened the company's financial position.
