Retail segment president P. Barrett Brown said:
Coming together as a single brand enables us to better serve our customers by simplifying and streamlining the use of our resources across the organization. Our brand is built on the quality and capabilities of our people and our service. We will continue delivering the excellent service our customers have come to expect, and we will add an increased ability to provide easy access to our broad range of capabilities, tools and market leverage.

Our ability to collaborate across a unified Retail brand will aid us in accelerating growth that can be reinvested in additional product innovation, teammates, technology and resources. We will maintain our dedication to our Culture of Caring and to the people and communities where we live, work and play.
