Mary Krug, a longtime Neiman Marcus merchant who was vice president and divisional merchandise manager of intimate apparel and children’s, died Sunday in a Dallas hospital following a brief illness, according to the company. She was 61.
“Mary was a gifted merchant, a selfless mentor and a great friend to so many of us over the years,” said Karen Katz, president and chief executive officer of Neiman Marcus Group. “Her 40-year career at NMG was distinguished and filled with achievement.…Mary was named NM Best in 1990, our second merchant winner. To me, that tells any associate just how special Mary was. She personified Neiman Marcus excellence, and she truly was the best of the best. We will miss her immensely, especially her beautiful smile, gracious demeanor and great elegance.”
