Kohl’s Board of Directors has elected Jonas Prising as a new board member, effective immediately. He has been elected to a term expiring at Kohl's 2016 annual shareholders meeting and will be eligible for re-election by Kohl's shareholders at that time. He will initially serve on the Board of Directors' Governance and Nominating Committee.

“Jonas is a great addition to our board,” said Kevin Mansell, Kohl's Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, adding, “His leadership of a major corporation with complex operations and his broad-based knowledge of workforce solutions and labor market expertise will be valuable assets to Kohl's.”

Prising is Chief Executive Officer of ManpowerGroup, where he has held a number of executive management positions since joining in 1999. He also serves as a director of ManpowerGroup. He currently serves on the Boards of JA Worldwide, JA USA, and JA of Wisconsin. In addition, he serves as a co-chair of MiKE, an organization focused on supporting innovation and entrepreneurial leadership.
