Arnold Brant Silverstone has joined Montreal-based clothing company Samuelsohn, where he will serve as president. He joins chief executive officer Stephen Granovsky, whose investment company purchased the 87-year-old firm in March.
Silverstone, who left Nordstrom two months ago after leading a revamp of the retailer’s tailored clothing private label, will be tasked with amping up the brand’s visibility, expanding distribution and reconfiguring its classic tailored offering for what he calls the “modern luxury consumer.”
