BY Marianne Wilson

At Home Group has appointed a new finance head.

The fast-growing value home-décor retailer named Jeffrey R. Knudson as CFO, effective Sept. 28. He succeeds Judd Nystrom, who is leaving At Home to explore other “early-stage growth opportunities,” the company said.

Knudson is currently senior VP, finance and retail controller at CVS Health. Previously, he served as VP of finance and accounting at CVS Caremark, director, treasury/mergers and acquisitions at Limited Brands, and previously director, mergers and acquisitions, at Express Scripts,

“Jeff’s strong finance and accounting experience and impressive track record at major retail and consumer companies will add considerable depth to the strong financial team we have in place,” said Lee Bird, chairman and CEO, At Home. “With 167 stores today and a long runway of growth ahead, we are excited to have Jeff on board to help drive the continued achievement of our strategic objectives.”

Commenting on Knudson’s departure, Bird said that he has been an integral part of At Home’s successful transition “from a privately held organization with less than 60 stores and $364 million in revenue, to a thriving public company that has nearly tripled in size.”
