TESORO TO JOIN SOUTH FIRM
NEW YORK — Lynn Tesoro, who resigned last month as senior vice president of corporate communications and Collection marketing at Polo Ralph Lauren, will soon join HDS, Hamilton South’s marketing and communications firm, WWD has learned.
Neither Tesoro nor South could be reached for comment Friday.
South said earlier this month that his new consulting business would handle clients ranging from the publishing industry to property developers to branded consumer goods.
Tesoro, who worked several years with South when he was president and chief marketing officer of Polo, had been responsible for the Polo communications department as well as marketing the Women’s Collection, Purple Label and Home lines. Earlier she was vice president of communications for Calvin Klein Inc. for six years. Before that, she served as director of public relations for Giorgio Armani Fashion Corp.
