The former CEO of Bloomingdale’s (New York), Tony Spring, has officially taken over as Macy’s (New York) CEO as of Sunday, Feb. 4. Spring replaces Jeff Gennette, who is retiring after 40 years with the company. Gennette plans to stay on with the company as Board Chair until at least this spring.

Spring spent 36 years with Bloomingdale’s, most recently as Chair and CEO. Over the past year, in addition to overseeing Bluemercury and Bloomingdale’s, Spring was the CEO-Elect and President of Macy’s, leading its digital, merchandising, customer and brand teams. In addition to being a member of the Executive Committee for the National Retail Federation (NRF; Washington, D.C.), among other robust volunteer work, he’s also Chair for the NRF’s Foundation.

“I am excited to take on the role of CEO of Macy’s, Inc. and to apply my over three decades of experience with our nameplates to build on this strong foundation and lead our company forward,” Spring said in a statement. “Alongside the Macy’s Inc. leadership team, we will remain focused on driving innovation, fostering profitable sales growth and delivering value for our shareholders, while strengthening our position as our customers’ trusted source for quality brands.”
