Molly Yearick has been named president of Tommy Hilfiger Wholesale North America. She succeeds Colleen Kelly, who is leaving her post after five years with the firm.

Yearick has been president of Calvin Klein Men’s Sportswear. She will be succeeded by Alex Cannon, executive vice president of merchandising and design at Calvin Klein Men’s Sportswear. Both Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein are divisions of Phillips-Van Heusen Corp.

Yearick, who joined Calvin Klein in 2003, was previously executive vice president of men’s sportswear sales at Perry Ellis, and before that was vice president of men’s and boys’ sales at Guess.

“Molly has done an outstanding job in supporting the launch and growth of the Calvin Klein men’s sportswear business over the past seven years. We believe her depth of experience and leadership abilities will help continue to grow the Tommy Hilfiger wholesale business,” said Ken Duane, vice chairman of wholesale for PVH.

Kelly, who joined Hilfiger five years ago, is leaving to pursue other opportunities. She was unavailable for comment. She is expected to leave by the end of the first quarter.

“During the five-plus years, Colleen Kelly has made a number of significant contributions in repositioning and growing the Tommy Hilfiger wholesale business, including the development of our exclusive arrangement with Macy’s,” said Fred Gehring, chief executive officer of Tommy Hilfiger Group.

Cannon joined PVH in June 2009. Previously, he had his own lifestyle sportswear company and was president of CK Jeanswear and Warnaco Men’s Wear.
