(NEW YORK) Robert Vignola, president of Calvin Klein Collection, is adding a few new responsibilities to his day-to-day schedule; the executive has just been named president, Calvin Klein Collection, global licensing and marketing. Vignola will report directly to Calvin Klein president and CEO Tom Murry as he oversees the company’s licensees, distributors, and experienced retail partners around the world. The company currently holds over 60 licensing and other arrangements spanning apparel, accessories, fragrances, and home products, as well as several for retail stores. “We are happy to have the opportunity to be able to expand Robert’s role at Calvin Klein,” said Murry. “I believe that he will bring the same level of professionalism to the licensing and marketing group that he has demonstrated with our Calvin Klein Collection business.”
In addition to Vignola’s new role, the company has added another to its ranks: Fabrizio Milan was named the Milan-based senior vice president, commercial director of Europe and the Middle East. He will report to Vignola as the overseer of all licensing activities for Europe and the Middle East, as well as sales for Calvin Klein Collection within the same territory.
