Ira Neimark, former CEO of Bergdorf Goodman

will be guest speaker

at the inaugural Palm Beach Luncheon

Thursday, December 4, 2008 at 11:30am



Palm Beach, Florida – The allure of the fashion industry will take center stage for an insightful lecture by Ira Neimark who spent more than 17 years as CEO of the world famous Bergdorf Goodman located on fashionable Fifth Avenue in New York CityMr. Neimark has written a book Crossing Fifth Avenue to Bergdorf Goodman from which he will share his experiences and lessons learned at Bergdorf where the store catered to a distinct client base of fame, royalty and wealth.  The inaugural Palm Beach Luncheon is scheduled for 11:30am on Thursday, December 4, 2008 to be held at the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida and it will benefit the Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History.


In 1975, Mr. Neimark became the first non-family member in two-generations to take to the helm as the new Chief Executive Officer of Bergdorf Goodman. He documents that he transformed the elite retailer from an old, dull, expensive and ‘intimidating’ store, into a young, exciting, expensive and ‘intimidating’ store.”   Bergdorf Goodman was a family owned company that was founded in the year 1901.


Among Mr. Neimark’s stunning achievements as the celebrated CEO of Bergdorf, he reintroduced European couture fashions in the United States showcasing Italian and French designers.  And, Mr. Neimark was among the first at a major high-end specialty store to host private parties for the top clients of Bergdorf Goodman where couture fashions were highlighted.  Crossing Fifth is replete with intriguing and personal stories about famous people such as Princess Diana, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Donald Trump and Leonard Lauder


The Master of Ceremony for the inaugural Palm Beach Luncheon is Kara Kostanich who is the Reporter/Weekend News Anchor for CBS 12.


The Palm Beach Luncheon committee members are, to date, State Representative Maria L. Sachs of the Florida House District 86; Lori J. Durante, Tanisha Nunn Gary, Esq.; Robin J. King, Esq.; Elyssa Kupferberg and Janie Lewis.
