Scott David Malkin (born 1959) is the founder of the Value Retail Plc and co-owner of the New York Islanders professional hockey team.



Malkin was born to a Jewish family, the son of Isabel (née Wien) and Peter L. Malkin. His father is a real estate investor in New York who owned the Empire State Building. His grandfather, Lawrence Wien, was also a real estate investor who pioneered the real estate syndication. He was raised in Connecticut and received degrees from Harvard College, Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School. In 1990, he sold his retail store concept, 2 Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California to the Japanese department store operator Sogo and then moved to London where in 1992, he founded Value Retail Plc. With Value Retail, he leveraged his experience in selling luxury goods and meshed it with the American outlet mall concept creating an alternative operating model to the traditional European shopping center. Value Retail focused on establishing outlet centers in the outskirts of large cities. The fashion brands pay 12.5 per cent of annual turnover for the privilege of selling excess stock in one of their village outlet centers. Although criticized from taking business from smaller retail stores in urban centers, the outlet centers only sell brand name goods that are a year old or older. As of 2014, Value Retail had nine "villages" in Europe near London, Milan, Munich, Dublin, Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Brussels, Antwerp, Cologne, Düsseldorf, and Frankfurt. He is expanding to China in 2015 with two new villages in Suzhou and Shanghai. By 2011, Value Retail had $1.5 billion in sales.

New York Islanders

In October 2014, it was announced that he and his former college roommate Jon Ledecky would purchase the New York Islanders professional hockey team from Charles Wang.

Personal life

In 1984, he married Laura Rice Russell. His sister, Cynthia Allison Malkin, is married to Richard Blumenthal who was elected as a United States Senator of Connecticut in 2011.
