Board of Directors
The legion of people who have worked for or with Sears includes leaders in business and government, as well as Hollywood and sports stars. Sears' executive rolls boast an impressive resume of philanthropy, political service, and support of the U.S. military in wartime. In this section, we offer biographies of four Sears luminaries: its founders, Richard W. Sears and Alvah C. Roebuck, and two of their successors, Julius Rosenwald and General Robert E. Wood, who ushered Sears into the modern age of retailing.
