Bruce and I grew up on the same street in Montreal. In later years he and my husband, Barry Richman, a professor of Management, became very close friends and colleagues. My memories of time together with Carol, Bruce, and the Mallen family are precious. I send my love and will treasure the memories.

I met Bruce and Carol shortly after moving to Los Angeles. When he started Filmcorp he recruited me to handle the internal accounting. In very short order that grew to, “what do you think of this?” or “analyze this and tell me if it’s worth it”, etc. I soon assumed the title of “Alex”. To say Bruce was intelligent and honorable and good natured is to sell him short. He was much more than that. I consider Bruce to have been the smartest, in an excellent way, person I have known. And very informal. No beating around the bush. He wanted the “punch line” as he called it. Then we could discuss it. We spent many hours and pounds working (and kibitzing) around the huge filled candy basket he kept in his office. For me he was a breeze to work with. And his word was his bond. He always remembered what he said, what he committed to and always carried it through even if he had changed his thoughts. Our relationship continued after Filmcorp as personal friends. Even after relocating to Florida. I felt so honored to have him as a part of my life I asked if he would be my Best Man when Sharon and I got married. To my thrill he accepted even though he would have to fly here from Florida. He will always occupy a very warm spot in my heart.

March 12 was my birthday, but bittersweet! My passion in life was initiated by a wonderful Marketing Professor at University in Montreal - Dr. Bruce Mallen. His passion and obvious love for marketing lit up my fascination with terms like NICHE TARGETING and MARKETING MYOPIA, which were so clear that these concepts have been my mantras for my life’s work. Whether in Sales and Marketing Management at IBM or starting/scaling my own multimillion dollar businesses, these ideas permeated all my activities. Bruce also had a consulting practice for outside clients that he asked me to join for a few projects (during my years at University). One required me to travel across Canada interviewing heavy equipment dealers to determine when and how our client (a large Japanese conglomerate) should enter the North American market. Bruce and I never met again, he moved to California to follow his many dreams and was extremely successful. I never forgot him, and over time Googled him to find out what he was up to. The last time I checked was March 12, 2021 my birthday – and discovered he had passed away at 83 that day. It saddened me more than I would have thought. I never told him how important he was to me and how I appreciated his contribution to my successes in many entrepreneurial endeavors and my enjoyment of life. Rest in peace Bruce, hope you read this now!

I knew Bruce when I went to work at Concordia. Although he was in a different department, most junior faculty like me looked up to him. He was doing pathbreaking work academically and at the same time making serious inroads into Hollywood! A remarkable man and a remarkable career! My condolences to his family. Baba

So sorry to hear of Dr. Bruce Mallen passing away. He was one of my professors in the mid-1970's when I took my MBA at Concordia University. Dr. Miller was respected and well liked by my fellow students. BDE.

Dear Carol ,and the entire Mallen Family, it was so painful, and touching, to participate in Bruce's Funeral, on Zoom. Yet, it was uplifting to see the great esteem that Bruce was held in, by so many, from such disparate fields. To those of us who knew him well ,this comes as no surprise. The void of his absence has left a hole in my heart, for several years now, but this final chapter just adds to the pain. May you all find strength, in the fact that you did all you could to make his life better, always. Hopefully ,the great memories, serious ,and humorous, will help us all. May he rest in peace.

Dear Mallen family. Condolences on your loss of Bruce. Without doubt he was one of my very best teachers at Sir George Williams University. If memory serves me well, he taught marketing in my third year there. Sorry for your loss. May he rest in peace.

Mallen family, Dr. Bruce was my Marketing Professor at Sir George Williams University in the 1960’s. He was the best teacher that I ever had. I will always remember him for his insight and his intellectual capacity to make the course so interesting. May those who loved him be inspired in their lives by the memory of this wonderful person and may they have no further sorrows.
