Wertheim, Vice President of Scabal, USA. “Bringing Jay Myers to run this division is a great choice.”

“I am being entrusted with a significant responsibility, which I don’t take lightly,” added Myers. “With a significant seasonal collection and an in season offering, which will be backed by one of the most extensive fabric collections in the industry, we believe we will offer a very unique opportunity for any retail looking for a fully diverse clothing selection.
