U.S. executives affiliated with the Marithé + François Girbaud jeanswear business tend to not burn their bridges behind them.
Robert Stec had two runs at the helm of the brand’s licensed operations in the U.S., first with VF Corp. during Girbaud’s U.S. heyday in the Nineties and then again as chief executive officer of Passport Brands Inc. beginning in 2007. When Stec left Passport, formerly I.C. Isaacs & Co., last year to join Hampshire Group Ltd. as president of its Hampshire Brands unit, the search for his successor concluded with another former resident of the Girbaud galaxy, Bob Arnot.
