MCCULLAR NAMED VP FOR FORSTMANN INT’L
NEW YORK — C.W. (Bud) McCullar has been named vice president of the two-year-old Forstmann International division of Forstmann & Co. It is a new post.
McCullar, who reports to Dick Pactor, president of Forstmann International, is charged with developing strategies for expanding both Forstmann International and Carpini USA.
Forstmann International is responsible for the company’s importing and exporting activities. Carpini USA and the Forstmann International division were founded in July 1992 to design, market and manufacture Italian-style fabrics as well as import fabrics from Italian designer Sergio Carpini for sale in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
Jeannie Winer, vice president of Carpini USA, reports to McCullar.
McCullar, 47, was most recently Forstmann’s vice president, retail development, and had handled the company’s EDI and Quick Response programs. Although he will still be responsible for EDI and QR, the retail development post will be reassigned, the company said. In other changes, Sally Jenkyn Jones has been named director of styling for the women’s apparel fabrics group. She replaces Dan Samuelson, who was appointed to the new post of director of styling for Forstmann’s men’s apparel fabrics group.
Jones is responsible for the direction and design of the line, supervising the styling team for women’s apparel fabrics. She joined Forstmann in March as director of yarn-dye styling for the women’s apparel fabrics group and will continue those duties. She reports to Brian Moorestein, vice president of the group.
Prior to joining Forstmann, Jones spent 10 years with the Worcester Co., here, most recently as president of its women’s wear division.
Samuelson, who joined Forstmann in 1972, is now responsible for fashion direction and design for the men’s apparel fabrics group. He reports to Jim Wallis, vice president, men’s apparel fabrics.
