Merchant Prince Marvin Traub, 87
October 12, 2012,
Traub joined Bloomingdales out of college and worked his way up the organization, becoming president in 1969 and chairman in 1978. Along the way, he transformed the retailer from an also-ran family department store into an upscale retail emporium and mentored generations of the industry's most highly regarded retail executives.
After his retirement, he founded Marvin Traub Associates, a retail consulting firm which was also involved in assembling the partnership that put Bloomingdales into Dubai in 2010.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Marvin and Lee Traub Flexible Financial Aid Fund at Harvard, or to Pin Down Bladder Cancer, the charity Traub established.
