He has worked with the talented team at Calvin Klein to expand the brand worldwide and has achieved this record growth while maintaining Calvin Klein's position as the premier designer brand.”

Most recently Ms. Goldie was the Senior Vice President, Creative Services, CRK Advertising. She will continue to be responsible for managing all creative development, strategic planning, and subsequent execution of creative between the company and its licensees.

Ms. Goldie previously served as the Vice President, Print & Broadcast Production, since joining the company in October 2001.

Mr. Carfrae is responsible for the global oversight of all communications, including Public Relations, Corporate Communications, Celebrity Services, and Special Events for the company's domestic and international offices, and network of agencies based around the world.

Additionally, in July 2008, Ellen Rodriguez and Pamela Bradford were both named to new positions within the organization.

Ms. Rodriguez was named Executive Vice President, Global Licensing & Marketing, also reporting to Mr. Murry. In addition to managing our domestic and international licenses spanning all brand tiers and product categories, she will now additionally oversee marketing as well as the licensing activities of the international offices.
