Eagle, formerly president and ceo of F. Schumacher & Co., will be responsible for brand strategy, business development and the retail and wholesale divisions. Prior to Schumacher, Eagle was president and ceo at Garrard Holdings Ltd. and earlier, John Hardy.

“Terri has tremendous experience in the luxury category,” Aram said. “She is a leader that truly understands retail and the power of brand. I have no doubt that she is the best person to execute strategies to secure the long-term growth of our business.”
“Product design and servicing our clients will continue to be a top priority at Michael Aram,” Eagle told WWD. “Because Michael continues to introduce beautiful collections season after season, we believe there is a tremendous opportunity to grow our core business with our existing partners.”
Last year, Aram celebrated 25 years in business and launched jewelry. He also recently extended the brand into the furniture and lighting categories. “At the same time, we will also explore additional line extensions and new licensing opportunities to increase the visibility of the Michael Aram brand,” said Eagle.
Aram also named Victor Boccarossa director of marketing and public relations. Boccarossa was most recently vice president of marketing at Schumacher, and earlier served as director of marketing at John Hardy.
