Jerome A. Chazen, co-founder and former chairman of Liz Claiborne Inc., wants to get a few things off his chest.
In his new book, “My Life at Liz Claiborne: How We Broke the Rules and Built the Largest Fashion Company in the World,” (AuthorHouse), Chazen describes how the partners took a small start-up fashion business and propelled it into the Fortune 500. He believes he hasn’t always gotten the public recognition or credit for building Liz Claiborne into the powerhouse that it was, since the perception was always that the company was run as a husband-and-wife operation by Liz Claiborne and Art Ortenberg. But the 84-year-old Chazen writes that he likes to think of it as being “Liz’s and Jerry’s.”
