NEW YORK -- David Snyde had been named president of The Vera Cos.
He succeeds Sol Shulman, who was appointed chairman of the scarf manufacturer, a new post.
Snyde, who was vice president of special projects, will continue to oversee such projects.
In addition, Kenneth Krieger, who was vice president and national sales manager, has been named executive vice president, a post that has been vacant for almost two years. His previous responsibilities will be absorbed into his new post.
The Vera Cos., a division of Salant Corp., produces the Vera collection of scarves and holds the scarf licenses for Perry Ellis, Perry Ellis America and Save the Children. Most recently, the firm began producing "Peanuts" characters scarves under license.
It had also been the licensee for Anne Klein for 18 years, but that relationship ended this month.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
