NEW YORK – The growing shirtmaker and sportswear company Robert Graham has created a new CEO position and named Chuck Hellman to the post.
Hellman has worked with Robert Graham founder Robert Stock before, from 1993 to 2000 for Mr. Stock’s previous apparel company called Robert Stock. Hellman comes back to Stock’s employ from a four year stint as president in charge of private label and branded apparel at Key Apparel and three years as a VP of private label sportswear at Oxford Industries.
“We expect to generate significant growth across multiple platforms including our core distribution. We will focus on international distribution particularly in Asia, South America and the U.K. and license categories where there is evident demand for our brand. We are also developing a plan for a flagship Robert Graham store,” Hellman said in a statement.
Robert Graham is sold at specialty and department stores including Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Mark Shale and Fred Segal.
