The board of Tractor Supply Co. has grown to nine with the addition of Tom Kingsbury, who has spent more than 40 years in retail.

Kingsbury has been president and CEO of Burlington Stores since 2008 and the company’s chairman since the spring of 2014. Before that, he held senior executive position at Kohl’s and May Department Stores.

“Tom is a talented leader with a pulse on consumer behavior and purchasing patterns, as well as an expert in merchandising strategies that drive market share growth and margin improvement,” said Cynthia Jamison, Tractor Supply’s chairman. “As we continue to focus on linking our physical and digital storefronts into one seamless shopping environment through the ONETractor initiative, we look forward to the contributions Tom will bring.”
