PARIS — Sonia Rykiel has appointed Nathan Levy as managing director in New York, effective immediately.
Levy will oversee retail and wholesale for the Sonia Rykiel and Sonia by Sonia Rykiel brands in North and South America. He succeeds Leslie Johnsen, who in August left the position of managing director, North America, after a six-month tenure.
New owner Fung Brands Ltd., which bought a majority stake in Rykiel last year, has signaled its intention of reconquering the U.S. market. Levy has held similar commercial positions, most recently as managing director of Erin Fetherston, the company said.
