Nordstrom appoints Amie Thuener to board
U.S. department store Nordstrom announced on Thursday the appointment of Amie Thuener to its board of directors.
Backed by 25 years of finance and accounting experience, Thuener has spent the last 9 years at Google owner Alphabet, where she has served as vice president and chief accounting officer since 2018. She is responsible for global external financial reporting, including certifying the company's financial statements.
She also has oversight of the finance teams for Alphabet's Other Bets, including Verily, Waymo and others. In this capacity, she has an advisory and governance role, including annual budgets, incentive compensation plans, strategic deals and enterprise valuations. Meanwhile, from 2013 to 2018, she served as chief accountant at Google, leading its SEC reporting, accounting policy and M&A finance teams.
Prior to joining Alphabet, Thuener worked as a managing director at PwC, for 16 years, providing accounting consulting services for various companies. She also served as a practice fellow on the Financial Accounting Standards Board.
"We are pleased to welcome Amie to our Board and are confident her expertise will provide important contributions to the Company," said Brad D. Smith, chairman of the Nordstrom board.
"Her experience working for some of the world's most innovative companies will help us as we continue to navigate a shifting retail landscape to deliver on our reputation for unmatched customer service.”
Earlier this week, Seattle-based Nordstrom also bolstered its Rack division, with the appointment of three new retail executives.
