Doug Williams has been named chief executive officer of HMX LLC, the successor of Hartmarx Corp., where he has assumed the top job only three weeks after joining the firm. In early September, Williams was hired as the company’s president and chief operating officer. The changes are effective immediately.
“Our intent when we brought Doug on board was for him to assume this expanded role as soon as possible,” said Nitin Kasliwal, chairman of HMX Group and vice chairman of SKNL, an Indian textile and apparel company which, along with Emerisque Brands, purchased Hartmarx out of bankrupcy. “He has hit the ground running and is the right player to help us face the challenges of this turnaround in a difficult retail environment.”
