Services were held Tuesday afternoon at the Riverside Gordon Memorial Chapel in Miami for Allan Zwerner, a long-time men’s merchant for Federated Department Stores, Perry Ellis and Tommy Hilfiger. Zwerner, 68, died Saturday at his home in South Miami, Fla., after a 6 ½-year battle with cancer, according to his wife Renee.
Zwerner, known as “Z,” spent 14 years at Burdines Department Stores in Miami as senior vice president and general merchandise manager of men’s and children’s before joining Macy’s Product Development organization in 1996 as senior vice president of product development for men’s and children’s. In 1999, he joined Perry Ellis International as president of licensing, a position he held for three years until joining Tommy Hilfiger in 2003 as president of the company’s U.S. wholesale division and president of men’s and women’s for Tommy Hilfiger USA. He also operated his own consulting firm, A to Z Advisory, and most recently, was a recruiter for Debra Malbin Associates, an executive search firm.
