Lester Gribetz, president of Lenox Corp., worked alongside Traub at Bloomingdale’s for 42 years: “He was a mentor from the days when I was a trainee at Bloomingdale’s. I bless him for caring enough about me and for making sure the path for growth and success was really endless. Whatever I needed to do, he supported me. What we did together was sort of magical. It was the beginning of the success of Bloomingdale’s.
“Marvin’s strength is his impeccable timing and his feeling for merchandise and talent. He was blessed with the innate ability to discover and support talent to the degree that was necessary to be successful.
