Shuffle Board: Jos A. Bank Names Chief Marketing Officer, Jacket Required Taps Sustainable Ambassador

Retail

Jos. A Bank Clothiers

Jos A. Bank Clothiers appointed Matt Repicky as chief marketing officer (CMO).

The company said his more than 20 years of experience building and transforming leading consumer, fashion and e-commerce brands will help it execute its mission of being the preferred men’s wear destination.

Most recently, Repicky served as CMO at Genexa, an early stage growth company focused on making cleaner over-the-counter medicines. Prior to that, he spent four years at toy maker Mattel as head of global brand marketing for Barbie, and worked at Amazon’s fashion division, where he led marketing for off-priced business MyHabit.

Jos. A. Bank Clothiers operates nearly 500 stores in 44 states and the District of Columbia, a nationwide catalog and an e-commerce web site.

Trade Shows

Jacket Required

Jacket Required, the U.K. contemporary men’s wear and streetwear trade show, appointed Phil Wildbore as its new sustainable ambassador to spearhead the growth of the show’s sustainable offer.

Wildbore’s first conscious brand, Road, launched in the 1980s. While working with a family-run factory in Leicester, he became aware of the poor working conditions that existed in a major part of the fashion industry. This epiphany was a catalyst for change. To raise awareness and get his customers to start thinking more about their wardrobe choices, Road branding and labeling began carrying the message: “Conscience–everyone involved in this garment has been paid a decent living wage.”

A new label, Monkee Genes, followed, that would encompass all his beliefs and become the first jeans brand to be awarded the Soil Association certification. Now Wildbore continues his journey within the sustainable fashion industry by working alongside Jacket Required in becoming its inaugural sustainability ambassador.

The next edition of Jacket Required takes place in East London’s Old Truman Brewery on Jan. 22 and 23.

Seacor Island Lines provides liner, short-sea, and project cargo transportation and logistics solutions to and from ports in the southeastern U.S., the Caribbean and the Bahamas, as well as door-to-door solutions for customers.
