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.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
