Nordstrom has appointed Farrell Redwine as its new chief human resources officer.
Through her role, Farrell and her executive team will support more than 55,000 employees at Nordstrom in stores, fulfillment and distribution and corporate centers. Farrell will also oversee human resources, including recruitment and succession planning, learning and development, recognition and retention, diversity and total rewards.
