FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — The TJX Companies announced Tuesday that Scott Goldenberg has been promoted to CFO, retaining his EVP title, effective Jan. 29, the beginning of TJX’s fiscal year.

Naylor will continue as senior EVP, chief administrative officer and also have responsibility for other corporate functions, including Information technology, legal, risk management, and investor relations.

Carol Meyrowitz, CEO of TJX, commented, “I am delighted with Scott’s promotion to TJX’s CFO position. Scott, who has spent the vast portion of his career at TJX, is both an outstanding financial and all-around executive with a very deep understanding of our business and organization. He has touched many parts of this company, having spent a good deal of time at The Marmaxx Group and, for the past few years, has worked closely with Jeff Naylor, overseeing most of the corporate finance functions. Scott is well regarded within TJX as a leader and places great emphasis on professional development within the organization. Jeff is a tremendous executive and with Scott in his new role, I’m confident that TJX will benefit from their combined leadership abilities, expertise and experience.”
