Previously, he served as General Manager of the New York store from 2005 until 2007 and then Vice President and General Manager of the New York store from 2007 until 2010, when he was promoted to his current post in Beverly Hills. He has been with the Company since 1994, serving in a variety of capacities of increasing responsibility, including positions in the Chicago, Chevy Chase and Highland Park (IL) stores.

Cruz will succeed Suzanne Stemper-Johnson, who has led the New York store since 2007 and is leaving Saks to pursue other interests. Stemper-Johnson has agreed to stay with the Company for a transition period in order to work on various other Company projects.

Steve Sadove, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Saks Incorporated, commented, "We are very fortunate that John, who is currently leading our second largest volume store and who has spent many years on the management team of the New York store, is returning to our flagship store in this important role. His strategic abilities and keen focus on both our customers and our associates make him an ideal leader for our iconic New York location. I want to also thank Suzy for her nearly thirty years of service to the Company and her many accomplishments over that time frame. Suzy has been a valued member of our team and we wish her all the best going forward."
