Springboard Futures Founder, Tom Mirabile, was sought out for commentary on the “inevitable” bankruptcy filing of Neiman Marcus on May 7th.

Tom Mirabile, founder of Springboard Futures trend consulting firm and who worked for nine years with Neiman Marcus in the 1980s and 1990s, agrees that Neiman Marcus took its eye off the ball digitally.

“In the last decade, new realities, like channel expansion and the luxury consumers’ unexpected comfort level with digital retail, have eroded the value of personalized service and expertise which was an unwavering focus for Neiman Marcus,” he says.
