"Lynn brings 30 years of expertise in brand building, unrivaled industry knowledge and a charismatic leadership style to a pivotal moment of our growth," said Christopher Metz, Managing Partner of Kellwood Company.
It is a thrill and an honor to be able to lead Kellwood on a vigorous path to growth with this unbeatable mix of assets," Shanahan said.
To drive the growth strategy of Kellwood, Shanahan, in short order, has built upon the already strong leadership team with three immediate and significant senior executive hires.
"Nobody is more qualified than Lynn Shanahan to take the helm of Kellwood," said Jill Granoff, Kellwood Company's previous CEO, and current CEO of VINCE.
"Lynn is a proven leader with a demonstrated track record of success in building global brands."
During her 15-year tenure in senior leadership positions at Tommy Hilfiger, Shanahan shepherded the company from infancy to a global fashion powerhouse. Ultimately responsible for all U.S. wholesale operations, she established its first e-commerce capability and helped build the company's $1 billion licensing program. She subsequently founded C2 Group, and brought Finnish clothing and textile brand Marimekko back to the United States. After being named President of Marimekko's North American division, she opened flagship stores on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, in Boston and in Beverly Hills.
