US retailer Brooks Brothers has appointed a UK wholesale manager for the first time, as it moves to expand its wholesale business.
Giles Preston has been appointed to the newly created position of wholesale manager for the UK and will be responsible for expanding the distribution of both Brooks Brothers mainline collection and its higher end Black Fleece by Brooks Brothers range.
Preston, who will be based at the company’s London office, most recently worked at luxury Italian brand Ermenegildo Zegna as sales manager for the West Coast of the US.
UK general manager Jane McCann said: “As America’s oldest apparel brand and a true style authority Brooks Brothers has a unique position in the market. We see tremendous opportunity to expand our relationships with specialty stores.”
