Neiman Marcus Group has announced that Michael Kliger is joining the company as President at MyTheresa.com and the Theresa flagship store in Munich. Neiman Marcus Group acquired the MyTheresa international online fashion retailer in October 2014.
Kliger, who has an impressive track record at McKinsey, Accenture and most recently eBay Enterprise, will assume his new position with the luxury German retailer as of March 1, 2015. He will bring with him a wealth of international retail knowledge.
“We are excited to have Michael Kliger join our team” comments Karen Katz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Neiman Marcus Group, “he will lead the day-to-day running of our MyTheresa business, as well as oversee the strategic direction, operational effectiveness and drive our continued growth around the world. His past experience in building and leading an International team will greatly help advance our very ambitious growth plans”.
MyTheresa.com, which Jessica Fioriti, Associate Analyst at Verdict described as a “pureplay innovator”, already counts ex-Harvey Nichols Fashion Director, Paula Reed, amongst its staff and now it brings on board Kliger, who will be based in Munich.
In addition, Dr. Thomas Mueller, Managing Director, has decided to leave the company for personal reasons. The company thanked him for his many years of dedication and contribution to MyTheresa.
