Taking control of the company from his father in 1950, Marcus was instrumental in promoting the exclusivity and uniqueness of the Neiman-Marcus brand. Through extravagant in-store promotional events and expert purchasing, he secured the retailer's reputation as an upscale destination while dramatically growing both the customer base and store locations. He secured the future expansion of the business through its acquisition by Carter, Hawley, Hale in 1969.
