Kenneth Cole President Paul Blum resigns

Jan '06
Men's & women's latest fashion provider Kenneth Cole Productions Inc announced that Paul Blum is resigning his position as President of the Company to pursue other opportunities.

"Paul has been an instrumental member of the management team of Kenneth Cole Productions for the last 15 years," said Kenneth Cole, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

"He has been a great partner in developing, building and segmenting the business and its brands.

He began with the Company when they were a small footwear business, and his contributions have helped them grow to become the multi-brand, dual-gender, international lifestyle business that they are today.

They appreciate Paul's dedication and commitment during his long tenure with the Company and wish him the best in his future endeavors."

Blum joined the Company in May 1990 and had served as President since March 2002.

Cole will temporarily assume Blum's responsibilities. He will be assisted by the Company's management team including the new executives recently announced, Richard Olicker and Henrik Madsen Jensen.

The Company's executive management team will report directly to Cole.

"The Company has a strong and deep executive committee, and they all remain committed to implementing their new business and brand strategies and to executing the goals and initiatives that are currently in place," added Cole.

Kenneth Cole Productions Inc designs, sources, and markets a broad range of footwear, handbags, and accessories under the brand names "Kenneth Cole New York," "Kenneth Cole Reaction," "Unlisted, a Kenneth Cole Production," and "Tribeca, a Kenneth Cole Production," as well as footwear under the licensed trademark "Bongo."

The Company has also granted a wide variety of third party licenses for the production of men's, women's and children's apparel as well as fragrances, timepieces, eyewear, and several other accessory categories.
