NEW YORK — Marty Goldberg, 73, a veteran in the women’s outerwear business, died Friday at Long Island Jewish Hospital.

The cause of death was cardiac arrest, according to his son, David.

Most recently, the elder Goldberg was president of MDP New England MacIntosh, a division of S. Rothschild & Co.

Goldberg grew up in Brooklyn and entered the women’s outerwear business after high school. He joined his father Max’s business, Julius Nelson, working his way up the ranks. From there, he worked for a few other outerwear firms before starting his own company, Briarlee Fashions, a private label women’s outerwear manufacturer, in the Seventies. He later went on to start Projections Limited, another private label maker. About 10 years ago, Goldberg joined S. Rothschild.

His son David is director of wool at J. Gallery, a women’s outerwear firm.

In addition to David, Goldberg is survived by his wife, Roen; a daughter, Leslie Fine, and another son, Robert.
