Teril Turner joined Bergdorf Goodman last Monday as vice president of public relations and special events. Turner, a 13-year Henri Bendel alum, most recently served as Bendel's director of marketing, producing close to 100 events annually.
“It’s been a long time since I've been the new girl,” Turner said. She is now overseeing events and public relations for Bergdorf's women’s and men’s stores, in addition to connecting the Bergdorf brand to consumers and media through experiential marketing programs, in-store stunts, and a bigger emphasis on designers and boutique launches.
In a move from the fashion to entertainment world, Karlie Kayser, who parted ways with Seventh House PR at the end of March after two years as event coordinator, is now working as a communications associate for Sandra Lee, host of the Food Network show Semi-Homemade Cooking With Sandra Lee. At Seventh House, Kayser managed 20 to 30 events annually, including 11 shows for last fall’s Fashion Week. In her new position, Kayser, who loves to cook and told us she's getting some pointers from Lee on grilling, is Lee’s personal press officer, handling projects like new cookbook promotions while incorporating her event expertise for the show's upcoming 200th episode party in New York.
