MENOMONEE FALLS — The Board of
Directors for Kohl’s Corporation increased by one Monday with the
election of Jonas Prising.
According to a Securities and
Exchange Commission filing Monday, Kohl’s increased the size of the
board to 10 and chose Prising to fill the newly created seat.
Prising term will expire at the
Kohl's 2016 annual shareholders meeting and will be eligible for
re-election by Kohl's shareholders at that time. He will initially
serve on the Board of Directors' Governance and Nominating
Committee. Prising is the chief executive officer of ManpowerGroup,
where he has held a number of executive management positions since
joining in 1999.
“Jonas is a great addition to
our board,” said Kevin Mansell, Kohl's chairman, chief executive
officer and president, in a statement. “His leadership of a major
corporation with complex operations and his broad-based knowledge of
workforce solutions and labor market expertise will be valuable
assets to Kohl's.”
