Tamara Mellon’s New Man



TAMARA MELLON has named a new CEO at the helm of her eponymous company, former St John chief executive Glenn McMahon. He succeeds Fritz Winans, who has left the company.

“Glenn has great experience managing global luxury businesses,” founder, chairman and creative director Mellon said today. “That was the level of experience we were looking for. He understands my vision and how to execute my vision, which is very important to me.”

Before his six-year tenure at St John, McMahon was president of Dolce & Gabbana USA, president of Ellen Tracy, executive vice president of Giorgio Armani Collezioni USA and vice president of Donna Karan, WWD reports. He will be based at Mellon’s New York offices at 660 Madison Avenue.

“Tamara represents the modern woman today,” said McMahon. “She’s a personality for sure, and she’s well known globally. I’m pleased to work alongside her, and I love her business model of ‘buy now, wear now.'”

Tamara Mellon – featuring collections that are renewed monthly rather than seasonally – will launch next month with ready-to-wear, handbags and shoes in key stockists, with the launch of  ecommerce and standalone stores to come next year.
