Anthony LoPinto

Yesterday Hudson’s Bay Co., the owner of Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor, named CVS executive Helena Foulkes as its first female CEO after serving as executive vice president of pharmacy giant CVS.  This is notable on a number of fronts.  First is that we have another sorely needed female CEO in the ranks of the Fortune 500.  Foulkes was also recently ranked among the most influential women in business by Fortune magazine. She will have a tall order seeking to improve both the company’s physical and online sales.
