Global Apparel Network, a provider of visual collaboration solutions for the fashion and related industries, has expanded its operations in the Americas and appointed a new president.

Fuelled by the launch earlier this year of its Visuality solution, the company has opened an office in New York City as headquarters for its Americas operations and hired John Robinson, a 20+ year veteran of the apparel industry, as its president in the Americas. 

Robinson most recently served as vice president of the apparel business unit for Lectra USA.

New US regional offices have also been added in Charlotte, NC; Grand Rapids, MI; and Los Angeles, CA.
