RAPAPORT... Neiman Marcus has named Ralph Lauren executive Geoffroy van Raemdonck as its new CEO, the retailer announced Friday. 

Van Raemdonck (pictured) was formerly group president for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and global travel retail at the luxury brand. He succeeds Karen Katz, who is retiring after more than 30 years with Neiman Marcus, the last seven as CEO.

“We are thrilled to welcome Geoffroy to Neiman Marcus, and look forward to extending the company’s positive momentum under his leadership,” said Neiman Marcus chairman David Kaplan. “He is a global industry leader and business builder with exceptional vision and energy.”

Katz will remain on the company’s board of directors, and will work with van Raemdonck during the transition process.

“Geoffroy has an impressive track record of success at luxury brands, and he is the right person to lead the company through this next phase of growth,” Katz said.
