Guy Milinazzo has been promoted to executive vice president of the Gladson Ltd. custom fabric division of HMS International, one of the largest men’s fabric producers in the U.S.
Formerly vice president of sales and operations for Gladson, Milinazzo will report to Bob McAuley, president of HMS International.
Before joining Gladson four years ago, Milinazzo had been vice president of Roger LaViale Ltd.
“The custom clothing market is better than ever,” Milinazzo said. “It’s a great time to be in the business; the consumer is more knowledgeable than the casual client of the Nineties. Exposed to fashion trends at the speed of light, he understands that image can influence and he cares about the way he looks. The client looks to our customers for advice on direction and style and that’s what Gladson is all about — better training programs, better partners and providing the right product to enable our customer to help his client.”
HMS has sales offices in Canada, Europe, Asia and India.
