Tauber returns to industry at Poly-Commodity

NEW YORK — Jeffrey Tauber has taken a stake in Poly-Commodity Corp. and is joining the company as president.

The one-time Bloomingdale's buyer and dmm left the industry in the early 1990s to launch CyberShop, an online department store. Prior to that, he had been president of his family's company, Avanti Linens.

"I've always wanted to get back to this industry," Tauber told HTT. "I feel there's vast opportunity in spite of the fact that everyone's running for the hills."

Tauber will oversee sales, marketing and product development a Poly-Commodity, which imports primarily high-thread sheets and flannel sheets, as well as flannel blankets, pillow shams and bath towels. Tauber said he hopes to tap Poly-Commodity's global network of suppliers to expand the company's product categories.

Joe Gleicher, CEO and principal of the 30-year-old company, will focus on sourcing and key customers. "I'm delighted that the company will solidify its leadership in this industry and continue to import and develop product for America's finest retailers and mail order catalogers," he said.
