Thomas brings 34 years of experience in all areas of Nordstrom to this role, beginning as a salesperson and then moving into store, regional and buying management roles. He most recently served as the company’s president of Nordstrom Rack. “Geevy is known as a customer-first, visionary leader. That deep knowledge, along with his curiosity and energy to try new things, make him uniquely positioned to take on this role. We’re excited for what’s to come for our customers.”

Karen McKibbin Named President, Nordstrom Rack

With Thomas moving to his new role, the company also announced Karen McKibbin will assume the role of president, Nordstrom Rack. In this position she will support the company’s 215 Nordstrom Rack stores, including operations, merchandising, strategy, finance and store planning, focused on continuing to serve more customers with speed and convenience, gain market share and grow the company’s store presence in top retail centers around the country.

“Karen has been with Nordstrom for 30 years in a variety of roles and has always proven to be a leader who consistently delivers results, develops talent and innovates to deliver to our customers,” said Blake Nordstrom. “She is the right person to take on our Rack business as it continues to evolve with the needs of our customers and we know she’ll drive results and growth into its next chapter.”

Prior to this new role, McKibbin was the company’s first president of Nordstrom Canada. She was named to the role in 2012, leading the company’s efforts to serve customers through its first international venture. In that role she and her team opened five of the company’s six planned stores (with one to come in 2017).

“Karen was instrumental in building an infrastructure that allowed us to enter the Canadian market, first with full-line stores and soon with Nordstrom Racks to come,” Nordstrom continued. “The entrepreneurial spirit, flexibility and creativity that she brought into that role will serve us well in the Rack as well.”

McKibbin began her Nordstrom career in 1985 as a stockperson. Over the years, her assignments have included salesperson, department manager, buyer and store manager. In 1999, she was named vice president, Los Angeles regional manager and has led three additional regions since then – the Northeast, where she pioneered the company’s entry into the competitive Boston market; the South, where she supported the company’s fastest-growing region; and Northern California and Hawaii, where she drove the company’s strongest same-store sales growth in California.
