Memo Pad: Levi’s New Man

by WWD Staff

From WWD ISSUE 08/26/2009


LEVI??™S NEW MAN: Levi Strauss & Co. is bringing in more executive talent from outside the company. The San Francisco-based denim giant has hired Jaime Cohen Szulc to become its first global chief marketing officer for the Levi??™s brand. He will report directly to John Anderson, president and chief executive officer, and will wield one of the biggest budgets in the apparel world. Levi??™s as a group last year spent $297.9 million worldwide on advertising in the year ended Nov. 30, according to its annual report. 

???Jaime is a strong, strategic business leader with a deep understanding of how to translate consumer insights into marketing programs that drive growth across geographies and channels,??? said Anderson. 

Szulc joins Levi??™s from Eastman Kodak Co.??™s consumer digital group, where he was worldwide chief operating officer. He was also managing director for global operations. Szulc??™s experience working in Latin America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East seems to have been of particular interest to Levi??™s, which is targeting growth in emerging markets. He began has career at Procter & Gamble Brazil and also served a stint with S.C. Johnson. 

Szulc is the second executive with a strong background in global business to join Levi??™s this summer. On July 1, former Yahoo Inc. chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen started his tenure as chief financial officer and vice president of the company. ??” Ross Tucker
