Burt Tansky knows the beauty of being in charge of Bergdorf Goodman. As one location, with a rich history and a rich clientele, it’s something a manager can really wrap his arms around.
“You can walk the store, meet all the sales associates, get to know the customers, and see instantly what’s right and what’s wrong,” said Tansky, who was chairman of Bergdorf’s from 1990 to 1994. Earlier, he was president of Saks Fifth Avenue, where he reported to the chief executive officer, so by joining Bergdorf’s, Tansky fulfilled his long-held ambition to run a major store. He emerged as the merchant prince of trading up, and he would never veer from that lane.
