Neiman Marcus taps Ralph Lauren exec as chief merchant

By Marianne Wilson - 09/04/2019
A veteran fashion executive is filling a gap in Neiman Marcus Group’s leadership team.

Lana Todorovich has been appointed president and chief merchandising officer of Neiman Marcus. Todorovich succeeds Jim Gold, Neiman’s longtime merchant, who left the company last March.

Prior to joining Neiman Marcus, Todorovich was president of North America Wholesale at Ralph Lauren, president of women’s apparel group at Global Brands Group and president at Perry Ellis International. She also held leadership roles at Warnaco - Calvin Klein.

Todorovich will be a key leader in Neiman Marcus Group’s transformation strategy, moving to a more customer-centric organization by creating a new and engaging luxury retail experience for the global customer, the company stated.

“As we build the preeminent luxury customer platform to bring seamless, personal and magical experiences to our customers, Lana’s depth of experience will help elevate the Neiman Marcus brand for customers, brand partners and our associates,” said Geoffroy van Raemdonck, CEO, Neiman Marcus Group. “Her outstanding leadership and partnership skills, as well as her proven track record, make her a perfect fit for our organization.”
