Huggins, who will return to the United States as Lowe's vice president of international operations. Prud'homme will report to William D. (Doug) Robinson, head of international operations and development.
Prud'homme comes to Lowe's from Loblaw Company, where he served in executive vice president roles in operations and merchandising, following a retail career at Canadian retailers, including Sobey's West, Wal-Mart Canada, and Super C.
