Kaufman Franco has named Suzanne Zikas senior vice president, sales. Zikas joins from J.Mendel, where she served as vice president of sales, and before that, worked at Vera Wang, Tse and Donna Karan. Zikas reports to company founders Ken Kaufman and Isaac Franco. “This appointment is a critical one for Isaac and me, not only because our rate of growth requires the experience that Suzanne Zikas brings, but also because it will enable us to focus on the creative development of the collection,” Kaufman said.
