Michael Kors, a global luxury lifestyle brand, has appointed Don Witkowski as the president of Men's.

He will report to John D. Idol, the company's chairman and chief executive officer.

Witkowski's appointment, effective January 4, 2016, is central to the continued success and evolution of Michael Kors Menswear's brand-building efforts.

Idol said, “Don has been in the men's apparel business for over 25 years and comes to us with a wealth of knowledge, expertise and strong relationships in this space. He will help us continue to lead the men's business into the next stage of growth. We are committed to developing this sector and feel that Don will seamlessly drive it forward.”

Witkowski was most recently at John Varvatos, where he served as the vice president of Merchandising. Prior to his five-year tenure at John Varvatos, Witkowski held executive positions at a variety of companies including Donna Karan, Nautica, Miss Sixty, and Barneys, according to a press release.

Witkowski said, “I'm thrilled to be rejoining Michael Kors. It's an exciting time for the brand, and for the Michael Kors Menswear business in particular. They have laid the foundation for what promises to be strong growth in an area with enormous potential. I look forward to joining this talented team.” (GK)
