Gherzi has appointed Eric Goldstein, David McAlister, Fernando Arguelles, and April Kappler as management consultants expanding the range and depth of services offered by Gherzi-USA.

Robert Antoshak, Gherzi partner and manager of the US office, said: “These industry leaders greatly enhance Gherzi-USA’s capabilities in fibres, textiles, apparel, new technologies, and sustainability. In addition, these professionals bring over 130 years of combined experience in the entire textile supply chain, from sourcing to manufacturing, to agricultural and sustainable business practices, and from operations to sales and marketing.”

Goldstein is a leading expert in all aspects of denim, from brand building to production and new technologies. He previously held positions with Ralph Lauren, where he launched RRL, and Gap Inc., where he created the 1969 label. Goldstein also founded Jean Shop in New York City, is a patent holder, and consults with different brands worldwide.

An expert in fibres and textiles, McAlister, a senior-level manufacturing, product management, and research professional, held positions at Uster Technologies, USDA, Parkdale Mills, and Mount Vernon Mills. He is a leading expert in cotton technology.

Arguelles, a yarn and textile marketer, had roles with Parkdale Mills, Intradeco Apparel, and TNS Mills, and has vast experience consulting with companies throughout the Americas.

An accomplished supply chain manager and environmental advocate, Kappler held positions with Cotton Council International (CCI), North Carolina Department of Commerce, ColorZen, and, most recently, the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) serving as project manager liaising between stakeholders in the cotton industry.

The Gherzi Organization was founded in Switzerland more than 90 years ago. Gherzi is an independent, global firm of more than 120 consultants, technical specialists, engineers, architects, and planners working across all areas of industrial and infrastructure projects.
