.J.Hilburn, the leader in custom-made menswear, has named Andy Janowski as chief executive officer (CEO), as the company continues to evolve its brand and positions itself for continued growth. The transition marks an important milestone as the industry moves from traditional business attire to address the demand for casual clothing for men.

Janowski most recently served as executive chairman of the J.Hilburn board of directors. He brings more than 30 years of experience in the apparel industry, including as former CEO of Smythson where he grew the brand by 50 per cent during his tenure. Janowski previously also held executive roles at Burberry and Gap, Inc.

Janowski said, “The extraordinary success of J.Hilburn over the past 11 years clearly established the brand as the leader in custom-made men’s clothing. As men’s tastes evolve, J.Hilburn is now well positioned to expand on its luxury customer experience and meet the changing style needs.”

Michael Brown, Battery Ventures general partner and J.Hilburn Board director said, “As an initial investor, Battery Ventures believed early on in the power of the J.Hilburn model. With Andy’s appointment and the current leadership team, we could not be more confident with that investment and the future of the company.”

The announcement follows the departure of J.Hilburn co-founder and CEO, Veeral Rathod, who resigned to pursue other opportunities. (GK)
