Clothing manufacturer Delta Galil has named Tom Witthuhn as the new CEO of Delta Galil USA, replacing David Kostman in the role.


Witthuhn joins the company from Fruit of the Loom, where he spent eight years as senior VP of international operations and global licensing. He has also held senior positions with Jockey International, TAL Inc and retailer JC Penney.


"We are proud to have someone with Tom's skills and experience to lead our US operations," said Delta Galil chairman and CEO Dov Lautman.


"We believe his unique combination of manufacturing and retail experience will position Delta Galil USA as a superior partner to our suppliers and customers."


Kostman is returning to Lehman Brothers to head the Global Internet Investment Banking Group after three years with Delta Galil.
