LEGAL EAGLE: The Neiman Marcus Group named Tom Mattei chief legal officer and corporate secretary.
Mattei continues with his responsibilities as chief compliance officer, and will now also oversee strategic legal and risk-related initiatives, loss prevention and matters of corporate governance. He will continue to report to Geoffroy van Raemdonck, NMG’s chief executive officer, who said Mattei “has a deep understanding of our business as a former public company general counsel and brings a wealth of experience to this role.” He succeeds Hannah Kim, who left NMG in December for another opportunity, according to NMG.

Mattei joined NMG in 2020 as assistant general counsel and assistant corporate secretary. He has served in positions of increasing responsibility, including becoming chief compliance officer and recently interim chief legal officer.
“Throughout his tenure, he has helped the company establish its corporate governance model and has been a critical leader in key financial transactions and corporate financing, building liquidity, capital structure and a strong P&L,” NMG said in its statement Thursday. Prior to joining NMG, Mattei led the legal, risk management and property management departments for Farmer Bros. Co., a Nasdaq-listed food manufacturer and distributor.
