HBC announces online head’s retirement

Hudson’s Bay Co. has announced that Iain Nairn will retire this month as head of The Bay, its online marketplace business. HBC president Sophia Hwang-Judiesch will assume his responsibilities in addition to her current role. HBC spun the online business off from its bricks-and-mortar division in 2021. Nairn, who had been named HBC’s president in January 2020, was chosen to helm The Bay marketplace. Wayne Drummond was promoted from chief merchant to president of the Hudson’s Bay network of stores.
