Bergdorf Goodman’s two senior vice president and general merchandise managers have been given greater responsibilities, following the departure of Tracy Margolies, who became chief merchant of Saks Fifth Avenue in May.
Elizabeth von der Goltz now covers 5F contemporary and beauty while continuing to supervise fine apparel and jewelry.
Melissa Lowenkron, who handles men’s, decorative home, and Little BG, has added shoes and handbags to her responsibilities.
They both report to Joshua Schulman, president of Bergdorf Goodman.
Von de Goltz joined Bergdorf’s in 2000 as a buyer for advanced designer collections, and rose up the ranks until being promoted to senior vice president and gmm in 2002.
Lowenkron began her career at Neiman Marcus in 1997 as an assistant buyer, rose to vice president, divisional merchandise manager of men’s sportswear, and joined Bergdorf’s in 2014. Bergdorf’s is a division of the Neiman Marcus Group.
Margolies was Bergdorf’s senior vice president and gmm for beauty, 5F contemporary, footwear and handbags.
