Kathleen Jordan – Neiman Marcus Group Inc.

To borrow from Mark Twain’s wit and wisdom, rumors of the department store’s demise may have been at least somewhat exaggerated. Brick-and-mortar shopping, as Forbes reports, is making a post-pandemic comeback, though it too must adjust to modern times. It is at Neiman Marcus Group, the national chain of high-end stores that Kathleen Jordan is […]

Tim Aimone – Hewlett Packard Enterprise

Justin Lee – CEC Entertainment

Bert Schnoebelen – Tecovas

It’s not just in Texas where boots are an indispensable part of one’s wardrobe. A high-end pair likely costing at least a few hundred dollars, you’ll probably want to try them on before pulling out the credit card. Especially if you’ll be shuffling across the dance floor to the Texas Two-Step or Tennessee Waltz. That’s […]

Sixty works by the two Japanese artists were on display from February to July of 2015. When Bennett, the […]
