I am so glad Barneys NY finally has a CEO. They need someone to help run the company and save it. Hopefully Mark Lee can be that person.
Barneys New York has named Mark Lee, the former head of Gucci, as its new CEO. The appointment of the 47-year-old takes effect Sept. 1. Former CEO Howard Socol retired in 2008, and since then a committee of seven executives has run the company.
Lee started his career at Saks Fifth Avenue in 1984 and went on to hold top positionts with the Giorgio Armani and Jil Sander brands
