Han joined the Bergdorf Goodman in September 2018 as a contractor and partnered with Darcy Penick, president of Bergdorf Goodman, to lead and establish the strategic growth plan for BergdorfGoodman.com.

After leading the overhaul of the BG site experience and its first app in partnership with its tech organization, Han transitioned in-house as vice president of Bergdorf Goodman online in February 2020. 

Prior to joining BG, she was the CEO and founder of Keaton Row, which focused on delivering online personal styling services. Prior to this, she consulted with Neiman Marcus in crafting an early strategy framework for Neiman Marcus' 'Digital Luxury Experience' program.

Prior to BG, she held a variety of executive leadership roles across stores, direct-to-consumer buying and retail for leading consumer brands, including SoulCycle, Tory Burch, Jack Spade, Kate Spade, and Gap.

​"I am incredibly proud of the work Cheryl and Melissa have done to build and develop talented teams, establish, and effectively deliver channel and customer strategies that are creating exciting momentum in the business. With their direction, I am confident that we will build upon our success as we continue to innovate on the luxury customer experience both online and in-store," said Penick.
