UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Another former Wisconsinite will try to right the ship at Target.

John Mulligan, who grew up in Eau Claire, has become the interim president and C-E-O of the nation's third-largest retail chain. He replaces Milwaukee area native Gregg Steinhafel, who departed earlier this week -- mainly over Target's customer data breach when hackers broke in during the last holiday shopping season.

Mulligan will at least temporarily hold the top spot at Target, where he's been for 18 years. He joined the Minneapolis-based company as a financial analyst in 1996, and was most recently its chief financial officer.

Mulligan graduated from Eau Claire Regis High School in 1983, and later earned a bachelor's degree from U-W Madison. He also has a master's of business administration from Minnesota.
