FISKE TO ABERCROMBIE: Abercrombie & Fitch has named John Fiske vice president of human resources, succeeding Ray Attanasio, who left the company about a month ago. Fiske was corporate vice president, human resources and organization development for Kenneth Cole Productions and before that was with The Timberland Co. as senior director of human resources. A&F operates 316 Abercrombie & Fitch stores targeting 18- to 22-year- olds, 157 Abercrombie stores for ages 7 to 14, and 60 Hollister Co. stores for 14- to 18-year-olds. The company also sells online and publishes the A&F Quarterly.



U4IA FOR FIT: The Fashion Institute of Technology’s School of Continuing & Professional Studies has received a gift of 11 U4ia workstations valued at $800,000 from Lectra Systems Inc., one of the leading suppliers of CAD/CAM systems to the sewn products industry. The donation will allow the Manhattan-based school to offer two new programs this fall: Introduction to U4ia and Intermediate U4ia, along with its current selection of CAD-related workshops. This follows Lectra’s gift in 2000 of PrimaVisions software valued at $375,000, with a $90,000 upgrade this spring. In 1998, FIT’s academic programs received a Lectra gift of $7.25 million in computer systems.
