Nov 17 (Reuters) - Department store operator Kohl's Corp appointed Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc Chief Marketing Officer Sona Chawla to the newly created position of chief operating officer.
Chawla is a potential candidate to succeed Chief Executive Kevin Mansell, Kohl's said on Tuesday.
As COO, Chawla will oversee store operations, supply chain network, information and digital technology, and the company's e-commerce strategy.
