PJ Singh

VP – Store Strategy & Product Management

Macy’s Inc.

In 2004, Singh launched his retail career as a buyer for the May Company before it was bought by Federated Department Stores (now Macy’s). Since then, he steadily worked his way up to a VP position just after turning 30, and he is now driving the reinvention of Macy’s strategy. Colleagues consider him an influential and motivating force for the company as well as its industry partners. Under his leadership in business development, lead strategy and development for a multi-year roadmap, Macy’s licensing division hit consistent growth annually. During the pandemic, Singh collaborated cross-functionally on the COVID-19 Response Strategy, which informed the reopening of stores while keeping the health and wellness of customers and colleagues as the top priority. He also launched and expanded some initiatives including curbside pickup. Additionally, Singh works to expand the awareness and importance of diversity and inclusion at Macy’s, serving as an executive sponsor and mentor for Macy’s Asian American and Pacific Islander employee resource group, ATEAM.

PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENT OF THE PAST YEAR

I am proud of the creation of a new strategy and product management team that brings highly engaged and influential leaders to drive our stores strategy, innovation and analytics roadmap, shaping a collaborative culture.

A PIECE OF MEDIA THAT INSPIRED ME RECENTLY

I recently started listening to the Work Life podcast hosted by Adam Grant. He’s an organizational psychologist with a unique perspective and interesting insights on team building and culture. I have found his approaches to problem solving especially refreshing and helpful in navigating this unprecedented year in retail.
