Men’s wear veteran Mark Jensen has joined VK Nagrani as director of wholesale operations.
Jensen, who has more than 30 years experience in the industry, most notably as director of men’s/buyer for Mario’s in the Pacific Northwest, will be responsible for all sales, promotion and distribution of wholesale product for the men’s luxury furnishings and accessories brand.
This is a newly created position and the appointment is effective immediately.
“A special thanks to Mario Bisio for putting me in touch with Mark,” said Vivek Nagrani, president and founder of VK Nagrani. “He is the perfect person to help us create product exclusively for our retail partners.”
Jensen said he met Nagrani more than 12 years ago when he was the buyer at Mario’s “and have always admired his creative talent and passion for his customer’s business. He is truly a fashion leader who is always looking to create innovative compelling product. I look forward to working with his great luxury specialty store partners and continuing to extend the growth of this unique brand.”
Prior to joining VK Nagrani, Jensen was product development and marketing manager of Tommy Bahama’s licensed sports apparel for seven years. Before that, he was merchandise director at Robert Talbott working to transition the brand from furnishings into a full collection of better men’s product.
