NEW YORK — Fresh talent and money will be pouring into Saks Fifth Avenue.
Marigay McKee, the chief merchant at Harrods, has been named president of Saks Inc., and Jennifer de Winter, a Saks veteran with the current title of executive vice president and director of stores, will become executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, reporting to McKee. The appointments will be effective once Hudson’s Bay Co. completes its $2.9 billion acquisition of Saks, which is expected around November.
