Esther Lee Leach: Tell us a bit about yourself and your background.
Britt Jackson: : I grew up in South Florida, where I met my husband Scott and now have two sons, Evan and Kyle. During my career, I have had the opportunity to live in many wonderful cities, including Raleigh, Chicago, and Indianapolis. Three and a half years ago, I was recruited by Neiman Marcus to become the Vice President, General Manager of the Denver store, which is hands down my favorite city.
ELL: Describe your role at Neiman Marcus Cherry Creek.
Britt J: As VP, General Manager, I am responsible for the strategic outlook for the store. This includes managing a team of 150 plus associates, leading our management team and working with the Denver community to continue our support of the local arts and philanthropy. I also work with our corporate team in Dallas to convey the needs of our customers in regards to merchandise and marketing.
ELL: How would you describe your style?

ELL: Do you have a go-to fashion formula or uniform when you need to pull an outfit together quickly for work?
Britt J: My go-to fashion formula is definitely black. It transitions easy from day to night, you can mix high and low and mix in texture and pattern with different fabrics.
ELL: Where do you find your style inspiration?
Britt J: Some of my style inspirations are Dianne Keaton, Jennifer Aniston and Megan Markle. I also look at street style and international cities for inspiration.
ELL: Is there anyone you look to for style ideas?
Britt J: Of course, I look towards Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing for his style and trend selections for the season.
