The TJX Companies, a retailer of clothes and home fashions in the US and worldwide, has appointed Scott Goldenberg as chief financial officer (CFO), retaining his executive vice president (EVP) title. Goldenberg will oversee corporate finance for TJX and continue to report to Jeffrey Naylor who had resumed the CFO position in 2009. Naylor will continue as senior EVP, chief administrative officer and will also have responsibility for other corporate functions, including IT, legal, risk management, and investor relations.

He left the company in 1988 to head the finance division of Auto Palace, a division of Rite-Aid at the time, and then served as CFO after the firm was acquired, until 1996. In January 1997, he rejoined TJX as vice president (VP), corporate controller and then moved to The Marmaxx Group, where he spent the next eight years, his last position at Marmaxx being SVP, director of finance.
In 2007, Goldenberg was promoted to SVP, corporate controller and since 2009, has held the title of EVP, finance for The TJX Companies.
