Karen Katz, President and CEO of Neiman Marcus Group, will be honored at Texas A&M University Wednesday as part of the 2014 M.B. Zale Lecture Series.

This annual lecture series is hosted by the Center for Retailing Studies (CRS) at Texas A&M’s Mays Business School. Katz will accept this prestigious award and deliver remarks to students from 11:30 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. in Ray Auditorium in the Wehner Building.

Katz began her career at Neiman Marcus as an assistant buyer. She served in several executive leadership positions before becoming chief executive of Neiman Marcus Inc. and its subsidiary Neiman Marcus Group in 2010.

"Karen's career path is what our students aspire to achieve,” said Kelli Hollinger, director of CRS. “Texas A&M's retail curriculum and educational program prepares the next generation of buyers, merchants, store leaders, marketers and retail CEOs. I hope in 20 years that one of the top retail students Karen speaks to on April 2 will deliver this same lecture series and be honored as a visionary merchant."
