Keeping Bloomingdale’s in the public’s face and in the forefront of corporate philanthropy falls on the shoulders of senior vice president of public relations Anne L. Keating.
It’s not like she can coast on a job that takes her coast-to-coast to orchestrate grand openings and fund-raisers and requires sustaining an extraordinary schedule of special events exceeding any comparable-sized retailer. She’s also the spokeswoman for Bloomingdale’s, which this time of year makes her more visible than usual, putting her on morning news shows to promote holiday trends and products. But on a Wednesday morning in the middle of the Christmas season, Keating, wearing a Michael Kors dress and a statement necklace of sea-washed glass designed by Sandy Hruska, seems very collected. Her secret: “A lot of rest, eating properly and the power of prayer,” quipped Keating, who oversees p.r., corporate philanthropy and special events and has a team of 40 associates nationwide.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
