GOULD SPEAKS: Bloomingdale’s chairman and chief executive officer Michael Gould will don the cap and gown and deliver the keynote address at the commencement exercises of LIM College on May 31 at Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center. He’ll also receive the Distinguished Achievement Award from LIM, which is focused on the study of business and fashion, and an honorary Doctor of Commercial Science degree.
“Mr. Gould’s fashion and retail leadership is legendary,” said LIM College president Elizabeth S. Marcuse. “Since he credits the launch of his retail career to an internship, and internships are a key component of an LIM College education, he will undoubtedly be inspirational to our students.”
