Dreamgirl Announces New Executive Team for 2011
Dreamgirl CEO Christopher Scharff said he sees huge potential for the company with the influence of seasoned veterans joining forces in 2011 to round out Dreamgirl’s executive committee.
Sussan Feldman is the company’s new senior vice president of merchandising and design. Feldman was the senior vice president of sales and merchandising for Biatta Intimates and served as president of L.A. Intimates, a division of Kellwood, bringing her years of experience to Dreamgirl’s lingerie and costume divisions.
Feldman said that she is excited to head up the entire design and product development process. Her focus is to build upon Dreamgirl’s already strong reputation in the industry with new exciting on-trend product offerings that will appeal to a young, hip consumer, expanding into new channels of retail and seamlessly merchandising existing best sellers into the new visions of the company. She will be working closely with Julie Hunot, vice president of lingerie design and the team of eight design professionals.
Dreamgirl also has tapped Phillipe Brzezinski as director of supply chain and production. Brzezinski brings more than 25 years of experience garnered in the apparel industry as production manager/director of operations. His extensive knowledge of domestic and overseas production includes a strong background in product development, sourcing, purchasing and quality control, which will help Dreamgirl move into new channels of distribution with more competitive pricing.
According to Dreamgirl, his proven ability to develop key relationships with domestic and international suppliers will expand Dreamgirl’s manufacturing capabilities and production growth by expanding the existing factory base into new countries.
