MACY’S WEST TAPS SULLIVAN FOR KEY POSTS
LOS ANGELES — Rounding out its senior management team, Macy’s West/Bullock’s said Wednesday that Jeremiah Sullivan will become its president and chief operating officer on May 1.
Sullivan had held the same position at Lazarus since 1989. However, that position has been eliminated due to the consolidation of Lazarus into Rich’s. Macy’s, Lazarus and Rich’s are divisions of Federated Department Stores.
Sullivan will report to Michael Steinberg, chairman and chief executive officer. In addition to Steinberg and Sullivan, the senior management team includes Rudolph Borneo, vice chairman and director of stores, who previously held the post of president, and Dan Edelman, vice chairman of finance and operations. Edelman will report to Sullivan and Borneo will report to Steinberg and Sullivan.
As previously reported, the 56-unit Macy’s West, based in San Francisco, has a six-year, $550 million program for new stores and major remodels, including the conversion of six former I. Magnin locations to Macy’s or Bullock’s.
Before joining Lazarus, Sullivan was chairman of Boston-based Filene’s. He also had been an executive vice president of I. Magnin, San Francisco, and vice president and controller of J.W. Robinson’s, Los Angeles.
