Neiman Marcus Group has named Katie Mullen to the newly created role of Chief Transformation Officer, according to Dallas Business Journal. In this position, she will drive CEO Geoffroy van Raemdonck’s transformation plan, commercialize new ideas, spearhead growth initiatives, and handle program and change management and corporate communications.
Mullen was most recently a Partner and Managing Director at Boston Consulting Group, where she was responsible for designing growth initiatives, innovating business models and leading growth initiatives for global retailers and others.
“Katie has been a critical partner to our organization over several years and specifically very recently in co-authoring our growth roadmap,” said van Raemdonck in a statement. “Her track record of leadership and insight in our sector makes her the clear choice to oversee the strategic deployment of our company’s evolutionary initiatives. I am confident that she will challenge us with a fresh, external perspective, but will also take care to protect what is special about Neiman Marcus Group as we drive change throughout the organization.”
