Catherine C. Marron’s career has spanned the fields of investment banking, magazine journalism, public service and book publishing. Most recently Marron was a senior feature editor at Vogue and contributing editor until September 2020.
She is the author of three books published by HarperCollins, “Becoming a Gardener: What Reading and Digging Taught Me About Living (2022),” “City Squares: Eighteen Writers on the Spirit and Significance of Squares Around the World (2016)” and “City Parks: Public Places, Private Thoughts (2013).” While writing her first two books, Marron founded and launched Good Companies, a curated, online guide to “more-than-profit” brands in which mission driven companies strive to do good while also making a profit. This venture was shaped in part by the success of Treasure & Bond, a pop-up store that she co-founded with Nordstrom and Anna Wintour where all profits went to charities benefiting children in New York City.
Prior to her career in journalism, and after graduating from Wellesley College, she worked in investment banking at Lehman Brothers, where she was vice president of corporate finance, and at Morgan Stanley. In addition to being a board member of the Doris Duke Foundation, Marron is chair emeritus and trustee of The New York Public Library and a trustee of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and of Friends of the Highline, where she previously served as board chair for five years.
