Hudson’s Bay Company announced the appointment of Marigay McKee as the future President of Saks Fifth Avenue. The appointment will take effect shortly after completion of the planned Saks acquisition, which is expected to close before the end of the calendar year, subject to approval by Saks shareholders, regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.

“Marigay McKee’s experience as an effective world-class leader in the international luxury retail space is well-aligned with our vision for the Saks Fifth Avenue brand,” said Richard Baker, Governor and CEO of Hudson’s Bay Company. “She has a proven track record of success at the highest level of luxury and I’m very excited for her to head up our Saks business at HBC.”

McKee joins Hudson’s Bay Company with an extensive resume in the luxury retail sector and over 20 years of management and merchandising experience.

As Chief Merchant of Harrods, she has overseen the planning and implementation of the merchandising and creative strategies since 2011. She has served on the company’s Board of Directors since 2005, where she worked closely with the company’s shareholders and owners to set the strategic vision for the organization.

McKee joined Harrods in 1999 and was appointed General Merchandising Manager of Beauty in 2000. Over the next several years she added responsibilities for accessories, jewelry and womenswear.

McKee was given responsibility for all beauty and fashion merchandising in 2007, where she doubled key businesses, and drove profit and growth strategies. She also oversaw brand and merchandising strategy, marketing and visual merchandising.

McKee is a member of the British Fashion Council board, Chairman of the BFC/Vogue Fashion Fund Mentoring Committee, a luxury advisor to the Financial Times, and has done consultancy work in Russia with TSUM and Mercury Group.

“I am delighted to join Hudson’s Bay Company to head up Saks Fifth Avenue and work with their dedicated team,” said McKee. “Saks Fifth Avenue is one of the world’s preeminent luxury retailers with a rich history and tradition of exceptional customer service.”

McKee added, "Saks presents a great opportunity as a world class brand with new frontiers for development. I'm excited for this unique challenge as we embark on this new chapter at the company."
