Neiman Marcus Group has promoted Sarah Miller to senior vice president, chief information officer, succeeding Michael Kingston, who, according to the company, is moving into consulting.
Miller, who reports directly to Karen Katz, chief executive officer of NMG, will lead the company’s information services organization and strategies involving technology and digital innovation. She joined the Dallas-based luxury retailer in July 2013 as vice president of enterprise applications. Over the past three years, she has led what the company described as “several transformational strategic initiatives for NMG, including NMG One, which was a complex multiyear project involving converting merchandising and planning systems to one common system across all brands and channels. It recently went live, and when the kinks are ironed out it is expected to help NMG manage its inventory planning, buying and allocating better, sell more merchandise at regular prices, better understand customers, and provide a more consistent shopping experience across all channels. Miller also led the formation of a new warehouse management system, a new applicant tracking system and RFID for stores.
Before joining NMG, Miller held IT roles at Lowe’s Cos., and was the chief information officer at Nash Finch Co., a $5 billion retail and food distribution company based in Minneapolis. She began her career at IBM.
