In an industry defined by creativity and change, New York-based Macy's Merchandising Group is a formidable force.

Our mission: Achieve our sales and margin objective while differentiating Macy's from the competition.

The Macy's Merchandising Group is charged with managing core vendor relationships in the domestic branded market. MMG works with national brands - such as Polo/Ralph Lauren, Kenneth Cole, DKNY, Jones New York, Liz Claiborne, Nine West, Tommy Hilfiger, and Estee Lauder - to strategically guide the Macy's divisions of Federated Department Stores, Inc. in buying product assortments for stores across the country. Additionally, MMG identifies product from these brands that will be exclusive to Macy's stores.

MMG is also responsible for conceptualizing, designing, sourcing, and marketing private label and private branded goods sold at Macy's (and, in some cases, at Bloomingdale's). Some of our highly successful private brand names are - INC, Charter Club/Club Room, Alfani, Style & Co., Jennifer Moore, Tasso Elba, Tools of the Trade, Hotel Collection, The Cellar, Greendog and First Impressions. Our in-house design and production teams work with product developers to identify trends in the marketplace. MMG identifies the best source for each product to bring definitive value at competitive retail prices to Federated's customers with the support of 500 associates in offices in 14 nations. We drive private brand sales through aggressive and innovative marketing and sales promotion programs. MMG's private brand merchandise represents about 18.1 percent of total Federated sales - amounting to about $3.4 billion a year at retail.

MMG is an integrated partner with Macy's Home Store, the company's centralized organization responsible for buying, planning and marketing home-related merchandise sold in all Macy's stores. Through Macy's Home Store, the company develops and coordinates home assortments that are fresh and distinctive - making Macy's a destination in areas such as furniture, decorative home accessories, tabletop, housewares and home textiles. The Macy's bridal registry is one of the largest and most successful in America.

Our culture thrives on innovation, freethinking and flexibility. It makes for an environment that is exciting and energetic. Our success is attributed to our people. We recognize that good work starts with good people. So attracting and retaining capable employees is certainly a top priority. Our work/life model reflects our commitment to our people. We are focused on work/life balance achieved through flextime programs, casual dress and an emphasis on promoting from within. Learning and development is part of every associate's experience. And during the warm-weather months, we have summer hours so our people can have a little more time to relax. (For more details, see work/life benefits section.)

We take pride in our reputation as a progressive and responsible employer.
