Edelman, Harrison in new roles at Macy’s

Cincinnati -- Macy's Inc. has appointed Daniel Edelman, currently president and coo of San Francisco-based Macy's West, to the new corporate-level position of president for international retail development.

Robert Harrison, previously president and coo of Macy's Northwest in Seattle, will succeed Edelman. Both appointments are effective immediately.

In his new role, Edelman will be responsible for researching and analyzing opportunities for international expansion of the Macy’s and Bloomingdale's brands. He will remain based in San Francisco and report to Terry Lundgren, Macy's Inc. chairman, president and ceo.

Harrison led the recent transition that consolidated Macy's Northwest into Macy's West this spring. He will relocate to San Francisco to join Jeff Gennette, chairman and ceo, and Rudolph Borneo, vice chairman and director of stores, as part of the Macy’s West senior management team. Harrison will report to Gennette.

Macy’s West, with 258 stores in 13 states and Guam, reports to Macy's, Inc. vice vhair Susan Kronick.

“Macy's and Bloomingdale’s already are known around the world as fashion leaders, and we believe that selective expansion internationally will provide additional opportunities for top-line growth in the years ahead,” said Lundgren.
