Joseph Burdis, who oversaw Toyota dealership operations in mid-Atlantic, dies - Baltimore Sun

Monday, August 22, 2016

Ford Motor Co.'s first woman dealer in 1956. Mrs. Burdis continued in the car business for more than 40 years before retiring in 1992 as controller and partner at an Oldsmobile dealership in Glen Burnie.In the early 1970s, Mr. and Mrs. Burdis moved to Columbia, where he worked for Central Atlantic Toyota until retiring as vice president in 1993. There, he assisted dealerships with all aspects of their business operations, from inventory and sales to hiring."He would advocate for the dealer back to the franchiser," Mrs. Broccolino said. "He would advocate for their cause and help them improve their business operations so they could be more profitable."Carol Smith, Mr. Burdis's executive assistant for about 18 years, said he was known as one of the "founding fathers" of Toyota's mid-Atlantic operations and that he helped expand Toyota's reach when foreign-made cars were less commonplace."He made it his personal goal to make sure that Toyota was successful in this area," Mrs. Smith said. "He knew that Toyota was a good product, he knew it was going to be successful but it was going to take the right people to put it out there for the public to see."Mrs. Smith said that Mr. Burdis was known as "Big Joe" and that he oversaw at least 200 dealerships in the region. As a boss, he could be demanding, but friendly. "You knew when he gave you a directive to get it done," she said.Friends knew him as a gregarious, if self-effacing, man who devoted much of his time to his family."He was a charming individual and he was like a magnet, people were drawn to him," said Victor Broccolino, a longtime friend and the father-in-law of Mrs. Broccolino.Mr. Burdis was a longtime member of Christ Memorial Presbyterian Church in Columbia and was a member of the 388 Bomb Group Association. He also enjoyed golf. In the 1980s, he served as chairman of the board of the American Red Cross' Anne Arundel County chapter.When his wife died in 1995, he visited her at the cemetery every day for years.Funeral services will be held 10:30 a.m. Monday at Christ Memorial Presbyterian Church, 6410 Amherst Ave. in Columbia.Besides his daughter, Mrs. Broccolino, Mr. Burdis is survived by four sons, Raymond Burdis of Apollo, Pa., Ronald Burdis of London, England, John Burdis of Hanover, Pennsylvania, and James Burdis of New Market; five daughters, Rita Gable of Pittsburgh; Roxanne Burdis of Pittsburgh; Renee Lenart of Pittsburgh; Roberta Norris of Hampstead; Kimberly Woodsmall of Leesburg, Va.; 21 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

Richard Wyman, philanthropist and executive at Hochschild Kohn, dies - Baltimore Sun

Sunday, June 19, 2016

Hochschild Kohn on North Howard Street was one of the largest department stores in Baltimore, and expanded to satellite locations on York Road and at Harundale Mall in Glen Burnie.Mr. Wyman had an eye for clothes and introduced what his family believes were the first bikinis to be sold in Baltimore, after he saw them on a trip to France. The bikinis were too cutting edge for the time and did not sell well early on."He was one of the few people who had a sense of both the financial mechanics and the feel of a good cloth," said Liz Moser, a cousin from Baltimore. "The rest of his family was good at either the retail or the selling part."Mr. Wyman helped oversee the opening of satellite Hochschild Kohn stores in the suburbs, including at Edmondson Village Shopping Center. He also served in Korea from 1950 to 1953 as a first lieutenant, then returned to Hochschild Kohn.Henry Abrams, a nephew from Baltimore, said Mr. Wyman was slated to take over the family business, but another relative sold the department store to Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway in 1966. In 1969, he was recruited to work as the vice president for corporate development for Edison Brothers Stores in St. Louis, a shoe store.At Edison Brothers, Mr. Wyman helped oversee several acquisitions that expanded the company, including Jean's West, a denim company, Fashion Conspiracy, a juniors' line, and United Sporting Goods.Mr. Wyman retired from Edison Brothers in 1988, returning to Baltimore and keeping a second home in Jupiter, Fla. He became a limited partner at First Manhattan Co., a boutique investment firm, in New York in 1989 and worked there until his death.Relatives said Mr. Wyman donated several million to charities around the region, including to the Associated Jewish Charities, Johns Hopkins Children's Center and KIPP Public Charter Schools. He also donated to his alma mater, the Park School, and a 44,000 square-foot art...
