Following two-years of acquisition integration, Russell Newman Brands, one of the world's largest privately held sleepwear, loungewear and intimate apparel companies, has completed its reorganization and is now led by soft goods' veterans who are managing the company as a single organization comprising a portfolio of respected brands and private label offerings and driving for a single vision of success.

With ongoing leadership from Board Chair and Chief Executive Officer Eric Hamburg, newly named Russell Newman Brands President, Raymond Nadeau is leveraging the best practices of the company's core divisions, tapping in to the experience of a seasoned management team and driving for market share by operating Russell Newman as a portfolio company.

“Russell Newman is a single organization with a single vision of success: to be the world's premier destination for major brand and private label women's and children's inner wear,” Nadeau says. “We will get there by managing Russell Newman as a portfolio organization under the leadership of a seasoned management team that believes in and shares that vision.”

With more than 30 years' experience in the apparel industry, Nadeau has led operations, brand-building, merchandising and customer development at Berkshire Hathaway, VF Corporation, Sara Lee Corporation and Cadbury. He joined Russell Newman last January as President of its Hotel and Spa Division.
