US: Saks general merchandise head Boitano to step down
Joseph Boitano joined Saks in 1999
US-based luxury retailer Saks Fifth Avenue has confirmed its general merchandise manager, Joseph Boitano, is to step down.
Saks, recently purchased by Canadian department store operator Hudson's Bay Company, said no replacement has been named for Boitano.
It is understood he will leave at the end of the month to "pursue some additional ideas".
Boitano joined Saks in 1999 and was appointed to his current role in 2007 for which he is responsible for Sak's designer and contemporary businesses.
Hudson's Bay completed its US$2.9bn acquisition of Saks in November last year.
The deal will create a leading upscale North American fashion retail business focused on the Hudson's Bay, Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue brands. The combined company will operate 320 stores as well as three e-commerce sites.
