Gordman's store operations get boost from seasoned exec

Andy Lundquist

OMAHA, Neb. — Long-time retail executive Andy Lundquist has joined apparel and home fashions discounter Gordman's as VP stores.

Lundquist has more than 20 years of retail management experience, most recently as SVP stores for Kohl's where he oversaw 270 stores in 21 states. In contrast, Gordman's operates 73 stores mostly concentrated in the Midwest.  

Lundquist was instrumental in growing Kohl's into one of the largest department store chains in the country.

“Andy brings an incredible wealth of knowledge and expertise to Gordmans’ executive team,” Jeff Gordman, Gordmans president and CEO, said.  “His tremendous experience developing talent as well as expanding a big-box retailer from a regional presence to a national footprint is a perfect complement to Gordmans’ expansion strategy.” 

Lundquist already has a history with Gordman's. He began his retail management career in 1988 as an assistant store manager with Richman Gordman Department Stores, the predecessor of Gordmans.
