Bob DeRodes

Executive vice president/CIO

Target Corp.




Target Corp. tapped veteran CIO DeRodes in the wake of the massive data breach that hit the Minneapolis-based retailer. DeRodes brings more than 40 years of experience in information technology, data security and business operations to the $72.6 billion retailer. While he’s not the CEO, DeRodes’ role—overseeing the company’s technology team and data security—is now arguably just as important. DeRodes has held top positions at Home Depot, Citibank and Delta Air Lines, and has advised the U.S. Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security and the Secretary of Defense.
