Men's & women's latest fashion provider Kenneth Cole Productions announced that Joel Newman, most recently Chief Operating Officer at Tommy Hilfiger U.S.A. Inc and Executive Vice President of Finance and Operations at Tommy Hilfiger Corporation Inc, would be joining the Company as Chief Operating Officer.

He joins the Company after a distinguished career of over 40 years in the retail and wholesale apparel industries.

Newman spent almost 12 years at Tommy Hilfiger as well as 16 years at Saks Fifth Avenue and its parent Batus Retail, culminating in his appointment as President and Chief Operating Officer of Kohl's Department Stores.

He also served as President of Calvin Klein Industries during the integration of its Puritan Fashion acquisition.

"Joel has extraordinary wholesale, retail, and brand building experience," said Kenneth Cole, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

"He knows he will be a great support to me and to the entire management team."

Newman will be based in the Company's New York and New Jersey offices and will oversee the areas of Finance, Operations, Human Resources, and Legal.

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."
