Macy's has announced the appointment of Elisa D. Garcia as Chief Legal Officer of Macy’s. She succeeds Dennis J. Broderick, who will retire as the company's General Counsel and Secretary, effective October 1, 2016, after 29 years of service. Garcia will report to Terry J. Lundgren, Macy's Chairman and CEO and serve on Macy's Executive Committee.

"Elisa Garcia is an experienced leader in corporate law with an outstanding track record and credentials. She is another example of the industry-leading talent attracted to our company, and we look forward to the positive impact she will make as part of Macy's leadership team," said Lundgren.

Garcia brings 16 years of experience as a corporate general counsel for major consumer-facing companies. Garcia joined Office Depot, in 2007 as EVP/general counsel and secretary, and became chief legal officer in 2013. For the seven years prior to Office Depot, she was EVP/general counsel and secretary of Domino's Pizza. Earlier in her career, Garcia served as regional counsel, Latin America for Philip Morris International, international and corporate counsel for GAF Corporation, and a corporate finance associate with the law firm of Willkie Farr & Gallagher.

"We also salute the career of Dennis Broderick, who has been instrumental in guiding our company though a wide range of complex matters over the past three decades, a period of significant evolution and growth for our company," Lundgren added.
