Differential Brands Group Inc. has named Maria Borromeo, President of Hudson Jeans.
“Borromeo brings strategic leadership and experience with a record of success of growing and presiding over a brand from its inception. Under Maria’s leadership, we look forward to maximizing the growth potential for Hudson not only through implementation of a strategic vision that aligns with the core Hudson culture and values, but also capitalizing on new product and marketing initiatives and strengthening the brand’s digital and direct-to-consumer strategy,” said Michael Buckley, CEO of Differential Brands Group in a media release.
Prior to joining Hudson, the company said, Borromeo was the co-founder and chief executive officer of Thakoon, LLC, a global luxury brand, where she successfully led all aspects of the business’s development, culminating in its acquisition and shift to a direct-to-consumer model with Silas Chou’s Bright Fame Fashion. Prior to Thakoon, Borromeo worked with other leading global brands including Alexander McQueen and Etro.
“It’s a privilege to join such a seasoned brand and to continue to build upon the vision of Peter Kim, its founder. I’m eager to bring all of my experience and energy to further the company’s prestige while tapping into the resources of Differential Brands Group to evolve the business model and strategically position Hudson as a world-class brand in the context of today’s global market,” added Borromeo.
Commenting on Borromeo’s appointment, Kim further added to the statement: “I believe Maria’s extensive background with global luxury brands will be invaluable as we execute not only on our strategic growth plans, but also on pioneering an evolved business model that addresses a rapidly changing retail environment and speaks to today’s and tomorrow’s consumer.”
