NEW YORK — Liz Claiborne Inc. has named new presidents in its Dana Buchman and Sigrid Olsen divisions.

Susan Kellogg, tapped for Buchman, and Becky Blair, for Olsen, both report to Gail Cook, group president over the two labels.

Kellogg’s post is new, while Blair succeeded Kathy White, who left the company.

Kellogg rejoined Claiborne as vice president of sales for Lizsport in 1998 and has since held positions in the Buchman and Olsen divisions, including vice president and general manager of sales operations and marketing for Buchman, her most recent post, and vice president and general manager of sales and business planning for Olsen.

Blair returned to Liz Claiborne after serving as vice president of sales for Karen Kane Inc. Prior to Karen Kane, she was president of Rafaella Jeans. Her first position at Liz Claiborne was vice president in collection and Lizsport.

In addition, Laura Dubin-Wander has been promoted to vice president and general manager for merchandising, design and product development, a new post at Dana Buchman. Dubin-Wander, who reports Kellogg, was director of merchandising for Victoria’s Secret Catalogue before joining Claiborne.
