Bloomingdale’s (New York) has promoted Denise Magid to the newly created role of Chief Merchandising Officer, effective immediately.

In that post, the luxury retailer said Magid will drive the strategic direction and performance of all Bloomingdale’s merchandising initiatives, including building and enhancing new and existing partnerships, expanding the brand matrix and product assortment, and ultimately influencing the future growth of the Bloomingdale’s brand.

The creation of the Chief Merchant role is a historic step for Bloomingdale’s and allows the brand to build on the exciting momentum coming off its strong 2022 performance and its 150th anniversary celebration, says Chairman and CEO Tony Spring.

“We are confident that Denise’s vision and leadership will continue to strengthen our relationships with our brand partners and further refine how we can cater to the unique needs of the Bloomingdale’s customer,” Spring said. “We look forward to Denise’s impact in this newly created role.”

Magid joined Bloomingdales in 2019 as GMM, Ready-to-Wear, Concessions, adding Off-Price in 2020 and Women’s Accessories in 2021. Prior to that, she held senior roles at Intermix and Saks Fifth Avenue.

“I look forward to taking on the role of Chief Merchant and working closely with the GMMs and the Bloomingdale’s team to push the boundaries of what’s possible,” Magid said. “Bloomingdale’s holds a special place in the retail landscape, yet I truly believe the best is yet to come.”


Bloomingdale’s is a full-line, upscale department store. A division of Macy’s Inc., it operates 34 Bloomingdale’s stores, 20 Bloomingdale’s The Outlet stores and two Bloomie’s stores in 14 states, as well as locations in Dubai and Kuwait.
