Nicole Zupka
Associate Planner
Served 4 1/2 yrs active duty

I am an Associate Planner for TJX and aspire to be a Buyer. Prior to joining TJX in January of 2012, I completed four and a half years of active duty for the U.S. Army, including a year-long deployment to Afghanistan. My time in the Army left me accustomed to quickly adapting to new environments. My Army experience also provided me the opportunity to lead a team, negotiate, and take calculated risks while serving in positions such as Platoon Leader, Rear Detachment Commander, and Chief of Current Operations for an Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit in Afghanistan. I look forward to using these same skills to succeed as a Buyer for TJX one day!

The nation's highest recognition to U.S. Employers of the National Guard and Reserve members and reflects our commitment to going above and beyond the federal law requirements in terms of supporting our service members.
