MINNEAPOLIS — Stephanie Lundquist has been named executive vice-president and president of food and beverage at Target Corp. In the newly created role, Ms. Lundquist will be responsible for the full spectrum of merchandising and operations for food and beverage, including strategy development and implementation.

Ms. Lundquist most recently was chief human resources officer since 2016. She joined the company in 2005 and has held leadership positions in talent acquisition and talent management as well as operational roles in business integration and project management. Earlier at Target she was senior vice-president of human resources for all corporate functions and had a key role in building Target’s transformation office and strategy.

She received a bachelor’s degree in business and communication from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn.

“In terms of what to expect, there are some things we’ll focus on that our guests won’t see, but that will make their experience even better,” Ms. Lundquist said in describing her plans for food and beverage at Target. “We plan on enhancing how we operate this area of the business by bringing key players from across the organization together to form one new team, while staying closely connected to the functions and capabilities we’ve built at Target to deliver a great shopping experience.

“We have incredible expertise supporting this area of the business, and I’m excited to propel that forward. This includes everything from thinking about how we leverage our range of fulfillment options to new brand development. But the primary filter will always be our guest and how we can make Target an even more joyful experience for them, whether they simply need a snack to get through the afternoon or are stocking up on staples for the week ahead.”
