Israel-based apparel major Delta Galil has named Suzanne Silverstein as president of its 7 for All Mankind division.

The move marks a return to the brand for Silverstein, who will be based in New York and lead the 7 For All Mankind bicoastal teams. 

While she most recently served as president women's contemporary clothing brand Parker, prior to that she was vice president of US wholesale for 7 for All Mankind. 

Silverstein has also served as vice president, divisional merchandise manager, at Saks Fifth Avenue, where she oversaw contemporary sportswear, coats, swim and dresses. 

Isaac Dabah, CEO of Delta Galil, says Silverstein's "demonstrated leadership skills – particularly as evidenced by the growth of contemporary fashion brand Parker – coupled with her deep understanding of the brand's heritage, will be extremely valuable as we continue to expand 7 For All Mankind into its next phase of growth."

Silverstein adds: "7 For All Mankind is the founder of premium denim and forged the way for other brands that followed. This feels like coming home. I know the brand and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the incredible team as we continue to execute the global brand's existing growth strategy and really focus on getting to know and serving our customers better."

Delta Galil Industries bought 7 For All Mankind as part of its purchase of VF Corp's Contemporary Brands businesses back in 2016, in a deal worth US$120m. The deal also included women's sportswear brands Splendid and Ella Moss. 

Earlier this year the company named British fashion designer Simon James Spurr as global creative director for 7 For All Mankind, tasking him to lead a new vision for product that bridges 7 For All Mankind's heritage as a premium denim brand with a new, modern approach.

The Israeli group's acquisitions continued this week plans to buy Hong Kong-based intimate apparel manufacturer The Bogart Group, a strategic supplier to brands including Victoria's Secret, PVH, Jockey, Adore Me, Vanity Fair and Hanes.
