The Year in Review
In some ways this could be called the Year of the Private Investor. Private equity houses discovered something we already know: The catalog/e-commerce industry is dynamic and full of rich potential. My message to those private investors: “Welcome to the table!”
I offer a hearty congratulations again to those merchants who made our Top 200 list of catalogs (see March issue), and to those who were named our Catalogers of the Year: Patrick Connolly of Williams-Sonoma, Mike Faith of Headsets.com and Marilynne Eichinger of Museum Tour (see July issue).
