Susan Glick, industry supporter, Chicago Mart VP passes

Susan Glick, instrumental in the development of numerous business to business events and guidance for the industries they served, and in particular the National Bridal Market Chicago, passed Tuesday, January 15.

Ms. Glick's tenure with the Merchandise Properties, Inc., Chicago, Illinois, extended over 35 years and includes the long-held position of vice president of Women's Apparel, a position in which she helped guide the development of the bridal wholesale industry by continually evolving the successful National Bridal Market to address industry trends and issues.

It was a signature approach that had a similar impact on all wholesale events, conventions and markets she oversaw, including StyleMax women's apparel, Men's Collective, and Casual Furniture. She was also an active member of the Fashion Group International (FGI). 

The news of her sudden passing left industry friends, peers, co-workers, and family shocked and heartbroken. 

Susan McCullough, senior vice president, Merchandise Mart Properties and long time friend and coworker, gave voice to that loss.

"We at theMART are deeply saddened by this terrible loss," she commented. "Susan left her indelible stamp on every project she touched. She was a consummate professional who was never satisfied with anything less than perfection.

"For so many of us who counted on her to deliver so much, she will be incredibly missed."

Peter Grimes, publisher, VOWS Magazine, in offering his condolences, added that Susan Glick was instrumental in the launch of the magazine 30 years ago, and remained a staunch supporter.

"We will always be grateful to and for Susan for the graciousness and support she showed VOWS in its very early days," he said, "and will greatly miss her personal style and professional, intuitive insight and commitment to detail she brought to every interaction no matter how small."

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Sarah Siddons Society,
