Neiman Marcus & # 39; Geoffroy van Raemdonck has a lot going for the CEO of a competitive retailer in the worst imaginable environment for brick and mortar suppliers. He has just steered the company out of bankruptcy and seen his main enemy defeated and humiliated, slapping the court to the end, making about $ 10 million for himself in the process.

Mr. Esper is leaving Hertz to become Chief Accounting Officer and Controller at United Natural Foods Inc., a Providence, R.I.-based grocer. Mr. Esper is losing his "retention bonus under the Company's Key Employee Retention Program" according to the regulatory filing filed on Monday. It is unclear how much his retention bonus was worth.
