Geraghty Named to Leadership Position at Fortunoff

Fortunoff announced on Tuesday the appointment of Michael Geraghty as its new chief financial and administrative officer.

Geraghty most recently was chairman of Filene’s/Kaufman’s, a division of The May Department Stores Co., prior to May’s acquisition by Federated Department Stores, Inc. He previously served as chief financial officer of that organization and held various other senior positions within the May organization, Marshall’s, and Abraham and Strauss.

“Michael Geraghty will be an extremely valuable addition to the Fortunoff team,” said Arnie Orlick, Fortunoff chief executive officer. “He has had tremendous success overseeing the operations and finance functions of a major retailer and Fortunoff will certainly benefit from his expertise in a variety of areas.”

Fortunoff, a retailer of fine jewelry and home furnishings in the New York metropolitan area, was acquired by Trimaran Capital Partners and Kier Group in July 2005, in partnership with the founding Fortunoff and Mayrock families.
