In this new role, Ross will be responsible for the retail operations of the Kellwood portfolio of brands, and the retail store expansion with a particular focus on Vince.

A seasoned executive with 27 years in the retail industry, Ross brings with him a wealth of experience in successfully growing and developing brands.
