January 3, 2005,
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 last week.
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. His contribution is reflected in JCPenney's increased share price and the fourfold rise in the company's market value.”
