DALLAS — Longtime Neiman Marcus merchant Mary Wenner has joined the Dallas Market Center as executive vice president of leasing.
Wenner succeeds Eva Walsh, who was named executive vice president of new business and retail development.
“Mary’s remarkable experience in merchandising and planning, team building and new market expansion will be a tremendous asset,” said DMC president and chief executive officer Cindy Morris. “Our trajectory in gift, home and fashion will benefit greatly from her retail intelligence and leadership capabilities.”
The wholesale campus sprawls more than five million square feet, including one million square feet for fashion.
Wenner started at Neiman’s as a planner in 1986 and most recently served as vice president of omnichannel merchandise planning for e-commerce, stores and catalogue.
The challenged retailer has seen a string of executive departures. Among the exits last year were chief financial officer Donald T. Grimes, chief marketing executive Wanda Gierhart, chief information officer Michael Kingston, Mytheresa fashion director Justin O’Shea and store development vice president Ignaz Gorischek.
