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.”
