SAKS FIFTH AVENUE MAKES EXECUTIVE APPOINTMENTS
NEW YORK — Saks Fifth Avenue has appointed Sal Lenzo to the new position of director of fashion visual merchandising, reporting to Jacqui Lividini, senior vice president of fashion merchandising and communications.
Lenzo, formerly associate men’s fashion director at Saks, will work closely with the men’s and women’s fashion merchandising offices and the merchant organization to interpret seasonal fashion trends into a company-wide visual presentation.
Saks also named Liz Tippins vice president and divisional merchandise manager for suits, dresses, evening and private label knits. Tippins, previously an executive at GFT USA, began her career at the Bloomingdale’s executive training program, rose to become a department manager, regional buyer and store merchandise manager, and eventually became a vice president and divisional merchandise manager at Neiman Marcus.
At Saks, Tippins will temporarily report to Wayne Meichner, executive vice president of merchandising, until the position of general merchandise manager for bridge, coats, suits, dresses, special sizes, contemporary and swimwear is filled.
