Our basic mission is to understand each retailer’s marketing channels and the consumer segments they target…then convert that knowledge into successful merchandise. This approach is how we add value to our products and increase performance for our customers. Years of merchant experience with big box stores, such as Macy’s and Neiman Marcus, have given Margot Townsend Inc. a prevailing business strategy for the fashion jewelry market. Now, 30 years later, the company is a prestigious, specialized, global enterprise.
Margot Townsend was raised in Boston and earned a B.A. in business from the University of North Carolina/Chapel Hill. She was recruited by Macy’s/Atlanta Division as an assistant buyer for cosmetics. After a short time, she became one of the youngest executives ever promoted to buyer of a high-volume department, fashion jewelry. Having established a reputation as a successful merchant, she was recruited by Neiman-Marcus as head jewelry buyer (fashion & silver jewelry) for all stores and catalogs. In that capacity, she traveled extensively throughout the world developing exclusive products. When she resigned from Neiman-Marcus and relocated to Atlanta, her mentor, Stanley Marcus, and other senior management encouraged her to maintain a relationship with their company. They supported her development of a small company to supply exclusive jewelry to Neiman Marcus stores and catalogs. Based on the success of that endeavor, Margot Townsend, Inc. was formed and relocated to Atlanta in 1982.
