Calvin Klein Inc, a wholly owned subsidiary of Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation announced that several of the company's senior executives based in their New York headquarters have been elevated within the corporate ranks, effective immediately.

Tom Murry, who has been with the company for more than 11 years, has served as the company's President & Chief Operating Officer for the last six years and will now serve as the President & Chief Executive Officer of Calvin Klein, Inc. During his tenure, Mr. Murry has overseen the company's phenomenal global growth trajectory as well as the successful integration of the company following the acquisition of CKI by PVH in 2003.

Said Emanuel Chirico, CEO, Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation, “Under Tom's leadership, the Calvin Klein business has more than doubled in size to over $6 billion in global retail sales. He has worked with the talented team at Calvin Klein to expand the brand worldwide and has achieved this record growth while maintaining Calvin Klein's position as the premier designer brand.”

Melisa Goldie has been promoted to the position of Executive Vice President & Chief Creative Officer, CRK Advertising, reporting directly to Mr. Murry. Most recently Ms. Goldie was the Senior Vice President, Creative Services, CRK Advertising. She will continue to be responsible for managing all creative development, strategic planning, and subsequent execution of creative between the company and its licensees.

In addition to the Creative Studio, Print Production, and Broadcast Production departments that currently report to her, the Fashion Office and Global Advertising departments will now also report directly to her. Ms. Goldie previously served as the Vice President, Print & Broadcast Production, since joining the company in October 2001.

Malcolm Carfrae's title has been elevated to Executive Vice President, Global Communications, reporting directly to Mr. Murry. Mr. Carfrae is responsible for the global oversight of all communications, including Public Relations, Corporate Communications, Celebrity Services, and Special Events for the company's domestic and international offices, and network of agencies based around the world.

Mr. Carfrae was named the Senior Vice President, Global Communications in November 2006. Prior to that promotion, he had served as the Vice President, Public Relations, since joining the company in January 2003.

Additionally, in July 2008, Ellen Rodriguez and Pamela Bradford were both named to new positions within the organization.

Ms. Rodriguez was named Executive Vice President, Global Licensing & Marketing, also reporting to Mr. Murry. In addition to managing our domestic and international licenses spanning all brand tiers and product categories, she will now additionally oversee marketing as well as the licensing activities of the international offices. Ms. Rodriguez rejoined CKI in 2006 as Executive Vice President, Licensing. She had previously been with the company from 1995 to 1997 in Corporate Planning and Business Development.
