NEW YORK — Michael Parker has been named group president of HMX Tailored, a venerable but challenged division of Hartmarx Corp. that includes the Palm Beach, Austin Reed and Sansabelt brands, as well as licenses for Tommy Hilfiger and Claiborne tailored clothing.
An 18-year veteran of the tailored clothing and sportswear markets, Parker was most recently vice-president of national accounts at Peerless Clothing International, a behemoth in the mid-tier that seems untouched by the problems plaguing similarly positioned vendors, Hartmarx included. Prior to that, Parker was president of PBM’s Bremen trouser division, and vice-president of Lanier Clothes. He began his career as an account executive for Tommy Hilfiger sportswear.

"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.
