There’s no better authority on longevity than Marvin Traub. “People are happier and healthier and live longer by being involved,” the youthful octogenarian said at Bloomingdale’s Tuesday night, when the store hosted a cocktail reception for him and his new book, “Like No Other Career.”
Traub’s reach, touching retailers, designers, distributors, manufacturers, sometimes even dignitaries, was apparent with about 200 former colleagues, current clients, friends and family at the event. It was actually the second launch party for the book; the first was held in Paris earlier this month at the American Embassy. The event provided another occasion to celebrate Traub’s legacy at Bloomingdale’s, his successful second career as a consultant and dealmaker, and his resistance to retirement. “I have two partners whose combined age is less than mine,” he said.
