Ullman returned to Penney's helm in April after the board fired former CEO Ron Johnson. Johnson spearheaded a transformation plan that led to plummeting sales and massive losses. Ullman has been assembling a new management team to help improve Penney's fortunes.

Berman served as vice president, marketing strategy and directed global brand strategy for all Northfield-based Kraft-owned brands.
