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."
