The Hudson’s Bay Company has a storied history in Canada, stretching back to the 1600s. The chain has seen more than a few changes over the years, most recently with NRDC Equity Partners acquiring HBC in 2008 and HBC then acquiring Saks in 2013.


As a result, HBC is both a really old and a really new company, according to Stephen Cerrone, executive vice-president of HR and CHRO at HBC in New York.
