Lifestyle apparel specialist The Wahconah Group has acquired Global Neckwear Marketing (GNM) in a move that allows the company to tap into new product lines.

Based in Cleveland, Ohio, the Wahconah Group is a privately held corporation that designs, sources, manufactures, and sells lifestyle apparel, currently on a limited basis.
