At her newly created position at VF, Williamson is responsible for domestic and international sales for all divisions of Splendid, Splendid Mills, Splendid Girls and Littles, as well as Ella Moss and Ella Girl. In addition to overseeing all sales functions, Williamson will pursue new business opportunities.
She is based in the New York office, but will travel frequently to the Los Angeles headquarters and domestic and international showrooms. Williamson reports to Jonathan Saven, president of Splendid and Ella Moss.
Saven said of Williamson: “She understands the Splendid and Ella Moss brands and is an innovative thinker with a proven record of driving domestic and international sales.”
The baseline of her role was previously handled by the sales departments, which Williamson now manages and will expand. “With her guidance, the company is streamlining how the sales divisions operate, allowing the sales teams to concentrate on the needs of our customers and pave the way for greater growth,” a company spokeswoman said.
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
