    • Name

      Nancy King

    • Position

      Senior Director of Technology, Loyalty Marketing and Promotions

      Minneapolis, Minnesota

    Nancy King always loved science, math and figuring out how things worked. When it was time to go to college, she decided to study Industrial Engineering at Northwestern University. She began her career in IT, and jumped into retail technology when she joined Target eleven years ago. 

    Nancy loves working at Target because every day she has the chance to work with an amazing team to solve really complex problems that can have significant impact on Target and the future of retail. Nancy says, "most importantly, I love that Target is a strong supporter of inclusivity — on our store and HQ teams and in the communities in which we do business. We talk openly, we support each other, and we build work families that have fun together while we make amazing things happen."

    When Nancy is not working, she spends lots of time chasing her two sons, who are 6 and 4, and playing with their expansive LEGO collection that is slowly taking over their home.
