USA: Phoenix Footwear Names Stuart Torchin Design VP
The California-based company said Torchin will be responsible for overseeing product design of its Trotters and SoftWalk brands as well as the recently acquired HS Trask and Ducks Unlimited brands.
It added he was previously involved in the design and sourcing of footwear from countries such as Italy, India and Taiwan, and has also served as vice president of product development for Benco International and GH Bass Shoe companies.
