STANLEY MARCUS: LEADER, INNOVATOR, MERCHANT

Stanley Marcus

The year was 1907, the place, Dallas, Texas when the legendary retail store – Neiman Marcus - opened, founded by Herbert Marcus, his sister Carrie, and her husband Al Neiman.

Years later, in 1926, Herbert Marcus’ son Stanley Marcus began his long and legendary tenure with the company, after graduating from the Harvard School of Business. With his dedication to excellence and passion for leadership, “Mister” Stanley took NM to unforeseen heights, forging the path that other retailers would always try to follow.

The legacy he left behind is a cornerstone in the NM foundation that will continue to inspire and drive us far into the future. Simply put, he taught us to lead.
