NEW YORK — Perry Ellis is gearing up to launch a line of women’s sportswear next spring, and has brought two key players to lead the charge.
Elissa Bromer has been hired as president of Perry Ellis women’s wear and Liz Tippens as executive vice president in charge of brand management and strategic planning. While Tippens will report to Bromer, both will ultimately report to Dan Shamdasani, president and chief executive officer of the Public Clothing Co., which holds the license for Perry Ellis women’s apparel.
