MARIKA TAPS KALLMANN: The Marika Group Inc. has named Scott Kallmann president of the San Diego performance fitness and yoga apparel firm. He succeeds Shelley Marks, who left the company in April in what was described as an “amicable split” by Marika owner Don Schumacher. Kallmann, a 20-year veteran of the apparel industry, was president of activewear manufacturer Rainbeau Apparel for more than 10 years. Earlier, he held various executive positions at Mervyn’s. Reporting to Schumacher, he will direct internal and external sales, operations and business strategies, marketing, finance and production, as well as oversee corporate development of the Marika Group brands, which include the core Marika line, Balance Collection and Shiva Shakti Collection.
