NEW YORK — Executive turnover at Warnaco Group Inc.’s Calvin Klein Jeans division continues.

The company said Monday it had tapped David Cunningham as president of Calvin Klein Jeans, taking over for Janice Sullivan, who Warnaco said is leaving the company to “pursue other interests.”

Cunningham was previously president of Warnaco’s Chaps business, and joined the company in 2006. Prior to that, he had stints with Paul Davril Inc., Timberland and Tommy Hilfiger USA. He will report to Frank Tworecke, president of the sportswear group.

“David has done an excellent job enhancing the Chaps brand positioning through elevating the aesthetic and quality of the product, while promoting operation efficiency,” said Tworecke.

He told WWD he is evaluating different candidates for the position and will be naming Cunningham’s successor shortly.

Cunningham is the fourth person to hold the top spot at Calvin Klein Jeans since 2006. Sullivan joined Warnaco in November 2007 after 17 years with Liz Claiborne. She had taken over for Patricia Royak, who also left Claiborne to join Warnaco in August 2006. Colleen Kelly left the post about a month prior to become president of the wholesale division at Tommy Hilfiger USA.
