Global footwear retailer Caleres has named former One Jeanswear Group executive, Malcolm Robinson, as president of the company's new men's and international division.

Robinson will oversee the strategic growth initiatives for the Caleres men's brands, as well as expand an international footprint across the company's portfolio.

"Malcolm brings over three decades of deep experience in men's apparel, brand positioning, merchandising and managing global brands," says Diane Sullivan, CEO, president and chairman of Caleres. "I'm delighted to have him join us, and to add this role, which will position us to build on our successes in the two significant areas of potential in men's footwear and the international arena."

Most recently Robinson served as EVP at US fashion company One Jeanswear Group's William Rast label. There he was responsible for the overall in-store marketing and sales strategy of the licensed William Rast denim lifestyle brand. Prior to that, he served as CEO and board member of apparel manufacturer Tommie Copper and president at intimate apparel maker Maidenform Brands.

Meanwhile, Robinson also spent a significant portion of his career as group president of wholesale sportswear at US apparel giant PVH, and has also served as executive vice president at Gant Corporation.

His appointment follows that of Target Corp veteran, Karlyn Mattson, as chief merchandising officer for Caleres' Famous Footwear division earlier this year.
