Neiman Marcus Group has made two executive moves as it continues to focus on its digital commerce operations.

The luxury department store retailer named Amanda Martin as senior VP, chief supply chain officer.

She will oversee the retailer's photo studio and customer care divisions.

Martin joined NMG in 2017 as VP of operations. Prior to that, she spent nearly 17 years at Target.

In addition, Vijay Karthik has been promoted to senior VP, chief technology officer. Karthik, who joined NMG in 2017, is tasked with driving end-to-end customer-facing IT development and architecture. He will lead a number of functions including omnichannel engineering, cloud platforms, operations and reliability, and architecture.

The retailer also announced long-term investments in its business, including more than $90 million in supply chain to enhance the company's systems and distribution facilities. It also is investing $200 million in technology for priorities including the retailer's Connect platform, the acquisition of Stylyze and new digital labs.
