NEW YORK — When Burt Tansky retired as chairman and chief executive officer of the Neiman Marcus Group, the industry was concerned how “Mr. Luxury” would adapt to his new lifestyle after 50 years in retailing. “I’m keeping busy doing nothing,” Tansky said Tuesday.
He retired from Neiman’s last October but resurfaced Tuesday at a breakfast at the Harmonie Club on 60th Street, sponsored by the World Retail Congress. This year’s WRC will be held in Berlin, Sept. 25 to 28. According to Ian McGarrigle, WRC’s director, the event will focus on the digital revolution, multichannel retailing, mobile technology, inflation and consumer insights.
