Over 40 years , Allen Questrom (Questrom’64) earned a reputation as a master of retail turnaround. With his wife, Kelli, a natural fashionista and fashion promoter, he helped set trends from fashion for the home to the latest in menswear. He owes much of his success, he says, to what he learned at BU from a forward-looking professor, a healthy dose of luck—and the winter of 1964, which failed to deliver a big punch of powder.
