Current chief operating officer John Harper will step down effective August 1 with no replacement, meaning his direct reports will report to to Jeff Gennette, chairman and chief executive officer. Marla Beck, co-founder and CEO of Macy’s-owned Bluemercury, will also be leaving this summer. The search for her successor, who will report to Bloomingdale’s chairman and CEO Tony Spring, is already underway.
