Hutchison comes to Hybrid from AM Retail Group, where he served as president since 2011 leading the organisation’s retail division (Wilson's Leather, GH Bass, DKNY, CK Performance, and Karl Lagerfeld Paris). In this role, he gained substantial experience in overhauling the brands’ organisational structures and go-to-market approaches, growing revenues from $100 million to over $500 million in seven years through incremental growth and acquisitions, according to a press release from Hybrid Apparel. He also helped build the e-commerce businesses for GH Bass, Wilson’s Leather, DKNY, Andrew Marc and Karl Lagerfeld Paris.
Hutchison began his career in merchandising and sourcing in the buying office at Dillard’s, where he led the creation of a private label brand. He later worked in product development and led the entire merchandising organisation for Wilson’s Leather, then transitioning into AM Retail Group to lead merchandising, marketing and design.
“The Board and I are thrilled to have Bill join the Hybrid team as CEO,” said Hybrid board director and Altamont Capital Partners managing director, Keoni Schwartz. “As a seasoned leader with a wealth of apparel experience and a proven track record of value creation, we are confident that Bill is the right person to lead the company. We believe strongly that his leadership will propel us to new levels and will be transformational for Hybrid’s business.”
“I am thrilled and beyond excited to join Hybrid Apparel and partner with Altamont Capital,” said Hutchison. “Hybrid is an industry leader and I look forward to working with the talented and experienced team in building a best in class organisation. I am also honoured to join Altamont’s portfolio team and leverage their wealth of experience and knowledge.” (PC)
