Richard E. Goldman
Richie Goldman joined the Board of San Domenico in 2015, after serving on the Advancement and Marketing Committees.
He grew up in Hazleton, Pennsylvania and graduated from Rutgers University with a B.A. in English. He was the co-Founder of Men’s Wearhouse (now retired). He is widely recognized as the marketing mastermind of MW, from his insistence on using TV as the main form of advertising as far back as 1975, to his careful nurturing and managing of the MW brand and image as the company expanded from one part of the country to another.
In January of 2009, Richie released his book, Luck by Design: Certain Success in an Uncertain World. The book, aimed at the children of Baby Boomers, received praise from educators, fellow authors, and reviewers. It won “Best General Non-Fiction” at the San Francisco Book Festival in 2009 and was a Finalist in the Self-Help: Motivational category at the National Best Books 2009.
In 2014-15 he was the Executive Producer of a documentary short film, Riding my Way Back, a story of using Equine Assisted Therapy to help soldiers with PTSD.
He has served on the Board of several schools including the Graduate School of International Business and Finance at Brandeis, Mills College, and Rutgers University.
He has a daughter, Emily Quinn, who lives in Oakland. He and his wife Traci live in Kentfield with their daughter, Ava, who is in 10th grade at San Domenico.
