If anyone in fashion and retailing could say “been there, done that,” short of sashaying down a catwalk, it’s Marvin Traub.
His merchandise and marketing exploits and how he made Bloomingdale’s synonymous with what’s cool and trendy are well documented. He spent 41 years at Bloomingdale’s, rising from merchandise assistant up to president and then chief executive officer for 13 years until 1991. A year later, he formed the consulting firm Marvin Traub Associates. He capitalized on his extensive network of colleagues, contacts and friends around the world — several becoming clients.
