Eric Jones Leaving Hart Schaffner & Marx

by MR Magazine Staff

Eric Jones, executive vice president at the Hartmarx subsidiary Hart Schaffner & Marx, has left the company.

Hartmarx CEO Homi Patel, reached for comment this afternoon, confirmed Jones’ departure. “We are sorry to see him go,” Patel said. “He has left to pursue other opportunities.” Patel told that Jones was leaving to take his career in a new direction, possibly in a more marketing-oriented position elsewhere. Patel emphasized that Jones is leaving the company in good standing.

Jones was named EVP in August of 2005, replacing Hartmarx veteran Robert Bruno, who retired after 41 years with the company.

According to sources close to the company, Jones’ replacement will be Brett Schenck, the vice president of Hartmarx’s Burberry tailored clothing division. Schenck’s previous experience includes positions at Salvatore Ferragamo and Nordstrom.
