The Skinny on Scott Malkin (from Women's Wear Daily and others)


This profile is about 19 months old -- interesting quote from the potential Islander co-owner:

... calling (Marvin) Traub the "Wayne Gretzky of the retailing industry," he noted Gretzky... was "good at ice hockey because he went where the puck was going, not where it had been."

From Value Retail's website:
"Scott Malkin is the founder and Chairman of Value Retail PLC. He also serves as Chairman of S.D. Malkin Properties, Inc. which develops retail, residential and hotel projects in the United States. Scott Malkin is a Trustee of the New York Public Library, and is a Vice Chair of the Urban Land Institute as well as Chair of the Urban Land Institute Europe."

While he has lived in London for over two decades, Malkin is "a graduate of Harvard College, Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School and serves in various roles at Harvard University including on its Global Advisory Committee and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute Advisory Committee."
