Michael D. Sullivan, president and chief executive officer of Merry-Go-Round Enterprises Inc. was installed in the Apparel Industry Hall of Fame during the American Image Awards gala Wednesday, Nov. 14, in New York.
The American Image Awards, sponsored by the Men's Fashion Association and the Wool Bureau, recognize individuals of personal and professional distinction. The event raised millions of dollars in new clothing donations for the Clothing Bank/New Clothes for the Homeless, a New York City charity.
Sullivan joined the management team at Merry-Go-Round Enterprises in 1974 when the retail operation ran 50 stores with less than $20 million in sales.
The award cited Sullivan's stewardship of the Joppa-based company, which reported 1989 sales of $479 million. This year sales are projected to exceed $620 million.
