NEW YORK — Todd Kahn has resigned as executive vice-president and COO of Sean John.

In an internal email obtained by DNR, the company’s CEO Bob Wichser called Kahn, “instrumental in identifying and signing key licensing partners,” for Sean John.

Kahn was hired by Sean John founder Sean "Diddy" Combs in early 2004, and during his tenure the company inked a slew of licensing deals, including tailored clothing, eyewear and fragrances. Prior to joining Sean John, Kahn served as COO and general counsel of Salant Corp., now a division of Perry Ellis International, and president and COO of InternetCash Corp.

Sean John executives could not be reached for comment.
