Washington, D.C. -- Alan Lacy, formerly vice chairman and chief executive officer of Sears Holdings Corporation, has been elected to the Board of Trustees of the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA). The board is the governing body for the nonprofit park watchdog organization.

 

“Alan Lacy is a fantastic advocate for our national parks,” said NPCA President Thomas C. Kiernan. “His business acumen is an asset for NPCA and our national parks.”

 

Prior to being named Sears Holdings’ vice chairman, Lacy was chief executive officer for Sears Holdings Corporation. Before that he served as chief executive officer for Sears, Roebuck and Co., and served as

chairman of the board of directors of Sears, Roebuck and Co. He has also served in leadership positions with Sears, Kraft Foods, Inc., and Phillip Morris Companies, Inc.

 

A resident of Lake Forest, Ill., Lacy serves on the board of trustees of the Field Museum of Natural History, on the board of directors of the Economic Club of Chicago, and is a member of the Commercial Club of Chicago.
