Michael Gould has been chairman and chief executive officer of Bloomingdale’s for 20 years, and Frank Doroff has been along for the ride the entire time.
“Frank was my first hire a month before I came to Bloomingdale’s,” Gould recalled at The UJA-Federation of New York’s Fashion Division luncheon Tuesday at Cipriani 42nd Street. “I never thought of it as a hire. I thought of it as a blessing. Frank always gives his people the opportunity to be more than they thought they would be.”
