VF’S NEW PLAN: Vanity Fair Intimates LP, an affiliate of VF Corp., has made several organizational changes designed to support the company’s strategic growth plan.
Eric Wiseman, vice president and chairman of VF’s Global Intimate Apparel Coalition, said: "These are important moves that will put the right leadership in place to accomplish our goals and establish a growth model for our company’s future."
The executive changes include:
Curt Holtz, formerly chief financial officer and vice president of operations, has been named president of mass brands and will have responsibility for all U.S. intimates brands in mass channels. Holtz will be responsible for "growing all existing businesses, strengthening retail relationships, and making sure we have the right strategic plan and resources to achieve our potential in this important channel," Wiseman said.
Chris Fuentes, formerly vice president of marketing for the intimates coalition, has been named to the new post of vice president of business development. Fuentes will have responsibility for identifying new sources of growth, which include new brands, new consumer segments and new strategies.
Scott Roe has been named chief financial officer for the intimates coalition. He will assume all financial responsibilities formerly held by Holtz, and will report to Bob Pines, senior vice president of manufacturing, operations and finance. Holtz and Fuentes will report to Wiseman.
