New appointment for Target Corporation

Minneapolis-based Target Corporation has named Gemma Kubat as senior vice president, supply chain engineering and activation. Kubat will lead the design, activation and ongoing management of assets that support Target’s global supply chain and logistics network. She will join the company on 6 August and report to Target’s executive vice president and chief supply chain officer, Arthur Valdez Jr

Kubat’s previous retail leadership experience includes human resources, finance, innovation, strategy and logistics. Most recently, she served as vice president, global business services for Walmart. Prior to that, she worked for Asda.

“We’re bringing together stores, digital channels, technology and supply chain to make shopping at Target even easier and more convenient,” said Valdez. “Gemma’s talent for applying advanced solutions across large organizations is exactly the right fit for Target as we continue transforming our supply chain to meet the needs of our guests.”

Target’s strategy to leverage its network of more than 1,800 stores includes completely transforming its supply chain and logistics capabilities. The work has been integral to offering guests free two-day shipping nationwide, same-day delivery shopped by Shipt in 150 markets and the rollout of Drive Up services.

“Success in today’s retail environment requires a supply chain that’s both cost effective and nimble to provide a convenient shopping experience,” said Kubat. “I’m excited to join the Target team and be a part of its differentiated approach that is leading the industry in fulfilment options for guests.”

Target Corporation serves guests at 1,835 stores and at Target.com. Since 1946, Target has given 5 percent of its profit to communities, which today equates to millions of dollars per week.
