The University of Arizona Alumni Association is pleased to announce a new webinar series, “Cats in the Corner Office,” which provides inspiration for your professional life from highly successful Wildcats.
The series begins on Jan. 28 with Terry J. Lundgren ’75, chairman and chief executive officer of Macy’s, Inc. During a live and interactive webinar, Lundgren will share lessons from his career with fellow Wildcats.
Lundgren has been chairman, president, and chief executive officer of Macy’s, Inc., since January 2004. Prior to this, he served as president and chief executive officer, a title he assumed in February 2003 after having served as president and chief operating officer as well as president and chief merchandising officer.
Lundgren began his retailing career in 1975 as a trainee with Bullock’s, a Los Angeles-based division of Federated. He held positions of increasing responsibility over the next decade in buying, store management, human resources and senior-level store management, as well as serving as the division’s director of stores. Lundgren was named senior vice president and general merchandising manager of Bullock’s in 1984. In 1987, he was named president and chief executive officer of Bullocks Wilshire, then an upscale chain of specialty department stores owned by Federated.
Lundgren left Federated in 1988 to join Neiman Marcus, where he served as executive vice president and shortly thereafter was named chairman and chief executive officer. He returned to Federated in April 1994 as chairman and chief executive officer of the Federated Merchandising Group.
