Gant has hired three independent sales agencies to help boost its wholesale business.
The agencies are 309 Works, Supreme Showroom and Kascade, and Gant will begin working with the companies at the end of June for the spring 2016 collection.
Justin Cupps, president of North America for the brand, said: “We have a rich brand heritage in the U.S. and we are working with our wholesale partnerships to increase our footprint in store and truly reflect the Gant offering in a more significant and dynamic way. To do so, we have brought on what we believe are three extremely strong and capable agencies who will cover the markets nationally.”
Under the new partnerships, each agency will be responsible for wholesale in different regions of the U.S.: New York-based 309 Works will oversee the East, South and Southwest regions, while Supreme Showroom, based in Chicago, will be responsible for the Midwest. Kascade, a Los Angeles-based showroom, will oversee the West Coast.
All three of the agencies report to Cupps.
