NEW YORK — Ilia Lekach, chairman of Parlux Fragrances Inc., has assumed the additional title of chief executive officer, succeeding Robert Kaufman, who resigned as president and ceo this week.

Lekach said he is not looking for a successor to Kaufman, who has run Parlux for the last four years.

“It’s time for a change,” Kaufman said Thursday.

Kaufman headed his own distribution company, The Fragrance Group, from 1980 to 1989.
