Ulta Beauty Names Bruce L. Hartman Chief Financial Officer

Ulta Beauty (NASDAQ:ULTA) today announced the appointment of Bruce L. Hartman as Chief Financial Officer, effective September 7, 2012. He will report to Chuck Rubin, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Mr. Hartman is an experienced Chief Financial Officer with extensive financial and operational expertise in retailing, consumer products, and real estate. He most recently served as Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer and Chief Financial Officer of The Yankee Candle Company. Prior to joining Yankee Candle in 2008, Mr. Hartman was the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Cushman & Wakefield from 2006 to 2008.

Mr. Hartman is a retail industry veteran, having served in a variety of senior leadership roles at Foot Locker, Inc. from 1996 to 2005. He was named Chief Financial Officer in 1999, with responsibility for all finance functions including investor relations, information services, corporate shared services, security, real estate, and logistics. During his tenure, Foot Locker gained market share, drove consistent earnings growth, executed aggressive expense reduction programs, and integrated several acquisitions, resulting in significant shareholder value creation. By 2005, Foot Locker was the world’s leading athletic apparel retailer with $5.5 billion in sales and 4,000 stores in 17 countries.

Previously, Mr. Hartman spent ten years with the May Department Stores, in Chief Financial Officer and Controller roles with Filene’s, Famous-Barr, Robinsons-May, Lord & Taylor, and G. Fox & Company.

Mr. Hartman has been a member of the Board of Directors of rue21, inc., a high growth specialty apparel retailer with more than 700 stores, since 2010. He previously served as a Director of Pathmark Supermarkets from 2004 to 2007.

Mr. Hartman will succeed Gregg Bodnar, who has held the role of Chief Financial Officer at Ulta Beauty since 2006. In March, Mr. Bodnar announced his plans to step down from his position to allow him to relocate to Michigan to attend to a family health issue, and to remain in the position to assist in the hiring and onboarding of a new CFO. He will step down as CFO on September 6, 2012 and will continue to work with Ulta to ensure a smooth transition.
