NEW YORK — Designs Inc., which operates Levi’s and Dockers outlets, on Thursday named Seymour Holtzman chairman.
Holtzman is chief executive of Jewelcor Management, which holds a 15.4 percent stake in the Needham, Mass.-based retail operator.
Last year, Jewelcor set off a proxy battle that resulted in the exit of previous management.
Designs also said that David Levin, who was named ceo Monday, and Stanley Berger, a founder of the company, were named directors, which increased total board membership to nine.
