Meet Marc, co-owner and CEO who puts the "Boy" in Boyds. Marc brings a unique energy and perspective to the cosmetic industry; a New Yorker at heart, he received his BA from the University of Miami in Florida, where he would eventually make his home.
He took over the family business in 2014, when the renowned "boutique pharmacy for celebrities" closed its doors in New York City after a phenomenal 70 year run, overseeing its transition from the legendary brick and mortar location to a thriving e-commerce business and most recently, an exclusive storefront in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
After living in New York City for 40 years, Florida was a major lifestyle change for Marc; for his loyal canine companion, Luke, it is a dream come true. Marc rescued Luke from an animal shelter in Harlem and he is a passionate advocate for the ASPCA and rescue organizations. He likes to tell people, "Luke rescued me" and unabashedly admits that Luke's charm and good looks have been responsible for "breaking the ice and introducing me to some beautiful women" over the years.
Marc is excited about the prospect of growing his company in Florida and online. In a nod to his New York roots, his line is called Boyds of Madison Avenue. He is looking forward to continuing his charity work with animal rescue groups and building business relationships that benefit beauties and beasts alike! Sounds like a win-win situation.
