Seattle-based retailer Nordstrom, Inc. has announced that Anne Bramman is joining the company as chief financial officer, effective June 2. She replaces Mike Koppel, who retired from the company on May 1 after 16 years with the retailer.

Bramman comes to Nordstrom from Avery Dennison Corporation where she has served as senior vice president and CFO since 2015. Bramman has an extensive financial leadership background in a variety of industries, including retail. She previously held the CFO position at Carnival Cruise Line and was CFO of Henri Bendel, a subsidiary of L Brands Inc.  In her new role, Bramman will focus on driving productivity and supporting Nordstrom’s continued growth.

“After a thorough search for a CFO, we’re excited to have Anne join our team,” said Blake Nordstrom, co-president of Nordstrom, Inc. “Anne’s breadth of financial expertise and background as a strong business leader will serve us well as we continue to invest in our growth strategy.”

“I’ve always admired Nordstrom and am excited to join the company during a time of transformative change in the industry,” added Bramman. “Nordstrom has been an industry leader in strategically investing for the future and I look forward to supporting their commitment to operating excellence.”
