DALLAS — The exodus continues at Neiman Marcus. Jake Einhorn said Tuesday he will be leaving as senior vice president and general merchandise manager for cosmetics, accessories and women’s shoes on April 15.

No successor has been named for Einhorn, who said he hasn’t accepted another position.

“I’ve made a decision to return to New York,” said Einhorn, who spent about seven years there for Neiman’s, most notably as White Plains store manager, during his 22-year tenure with the company. “I really miss the city.”

He said he will take about a month to leave Dallas and then consider his options when he arrives in New York.

Einhorn joined Neiman’s NorthPark Center store here in 1966 as a part-time sales associate while in high school. In 1972, he joined Neiman’s full time as assistant manager of women’s shoes, advancing to his current post in 1990. A spokeswoman noted that Einhorn submitted his resignation on Monday.

Einhorn is the third senior executive to leave Neiman’s this year. Terry Lundgren announced his resignation as chairman and chief executive officer on Feb. 1 to head Federated Merchandising at Federated Department Stores. The next day Ron Frasch announced he was leaving as senior vice president and women’s apparel general merchandise manager to join Escada USA as president.
