Lowe's has named Paul D. Ramsay as chief information officer, effective immediately. Ramsay, who has been serving as acting CIO since March, will report to Richard D. Maltsbarger, who was himself appointed chief development officer.
Ramsay is responsible for day-to-day operations of Lowe's IT organization, including the continued development of a technology portfolio designed to seamlessly support the operations of the company's stores, distribution network, e-commerce platforms and future business technology needs.
He joined Lowe's in 2011 with more than 25 years of experience in the IT industry. Ramsay has served as SVP of IT infrastructure and operations and was named SVP of information technology for Lowe's U.S. home improvement business in 2013.
"During his tenure at Lowe's, and particularly during the months as acting CIO, Paul has demonstrated consistent, strong leadership that is making a difference with the IT team," said chairman, president and CEO Robert A. Niblock. "Because IT is an integral part of the strategy and capabilities of an omni-channel retailer, having the function report to Richard will continue to ensure we meet consumers' future needs."
