ENK International is growing its empire with the purchase of WSA Global Holdings LLC, adding the footwear trade show to ENK's fashion offerings.
ENK bought its latest acquisition for an undisclosed sum from WSA's management, including Farber and Stone, and other private investors, who launched WSA Global Holdings in October. The purchase was made after the show's former board, which had led WSA as a nonprofit organization, sold the operations and donated $38 million to charity groups.
