MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Earlier this week Target’s CEO Gregg Steinhafel stepped down after the massive data breach that occurred last fall.

Following his departure, Target named an interim CEO, John Mulligan, a Wisconsin native and University of Minnesota alumnus.

Mulligan graduated from Regis High School in Eau Claire in 1983.

Target wasn’t even in the area back then.

Now 30 years later, his teachers still remember Mulligan as a model student.

“Very good student, excellent student. In particular, the classes in math and science, which doesn’t surprise me,” Bill Uelmen of Regis Catholic Schools said of Mulligan.

“He was a great student, hard worker, got along well with others and just was very inquisitive and asked questions, and was a quick learner,” Mary Allen of Regis Catholic Schools said.

Mulligan went on to graduate from the University of Wisconsin and earned a Master’s in business administration at the University of Minnesota.

Mulligan has been with Target since 1996.
