Interim Target CEO urges consumer confidence

NEW YORK — John Mulligan, the interim CEO of Target, said he wants customers to know they can shop with confidence at Target. Mulligan made his remarks during a TV interview with CNN's Poppy Harlow (See video below).

Mulligan, CFO of Target, was named as the interim CEO on Monday. He replaced company veteran Gregg Steinhafel, who departed the chain as it deals with the ongoing aftermath of its data breach.

Mulligan made it clear during the interview that even though he is only a temporary chief executive, the company will move forward as it looks for a permanent CEO.

"Interim is not idle," he said.
