John Francis Kilmartin Jr. (1921 – July 30, 2004) was the chief executive officer of Mervyn’s Department Stores.


Kilmartin took mandatory retirement from the company in 1986. He remained active in his retirement. He served on the boards of several retail companies and founded the Retail Management Institute at Santa Clara University.


Under Kilmartin's leadership, Mervyn's was highly regarded in the retail industry in the mid-1980s, when many of its competitors for the mid-range department store customer were floundering. During this time, many of Mervyn's rivals retooled themselves, adopting many of Mervyn's best ideas. J. C. Penney, for example, abandoned its old identity as a full-line department store, and, like Mervyn's, focused on apparel and soft goods. Moreover, competitors began publishing their own tabloid advertisements, imitating the marketing tactic Mervyn's had used for decades. Perhaps most importantly, several retailers across the retailing spectrum began selling department store-quality goods at discounted prices.

Kilmartin made the pilgrimage to Lourdes five times. He was a member of the Order of Malta since 1980. He served on the Board of Trustees at Santa Clara University and the Bay Area Council and was an active member of the Capitol Club. He was a past vice-president of United Way of the Bay Area. Between 1988 and 1992, he was a trustee of the San Francisco Foundation.


Following service in the Pacific with the Navy during World War II, Kilmartin began a 40-year career in the retail sector. When Dayton Hudson purchased the 55 Mervyn's Departments Stores in 1978, he took the reins as the company's CEO. Backed by Dayton Hudson's financial resources, Mervyn's embarked on a remarkable course of expansion. By the mid-1980s, the chain was operating 148 stores. In 1984, Mervyn's opened nine stores in Texas — its first adventure outside the western United States — and posted a $223.3 million profit on sales of more than $2 billion. The following year, Mervyn's contributed 37% of Dayton Hudson's operating profit.
