Target announced on Wednesday the appointment of Minsok Pak as Executive Vice President, Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer. He will join the company on September 11, 2017, and will report to Chairman and CEO Brian Cornell as a member of Target’s Leadership Team.
Minsok will join the Minneapolis-based company from The Lego Group, where he most recently served as Senior Vice President of Lego Retail. In this role, he was responsible for leading the company’s branded retail channel, including 250 stores and e-commerce sites across 24 markets.
He also spent two decades at McKinsey & Company, where he held various leadership roles, worked with leading global retail and consumer companies, and led the company’s Digital Transformation group.

Minsok’s appointment follows the departure of Chief Innovation Casey Carl, who stepped down from his role in April 2017 after having served for one-and-a-half years.
