Narciso Rodriguez's Longtime Business Partner Departing

Narciso Rodriguez's Longtime Business Partner Departing

>> Zac Posen
's mother and longtime business partner Susan Posen left his company last week, and this week, Narciso Rodriguez is experiencing a similar shakeup: his longtime business partner, Kathy Kalesti, is leaving the company on Friday. Kalesti, who joined the company in 1997, said: “Working with Narciso has been a great experience.” And Rodriguez added: “I’m grateful for all of her efforts on behalf of the company and support her decision to pursue other interests.” Kalesti will be replaced, but in the meantime, Robert Wichser, former principal at Ron Burkle's The Yucaipa Cos. (which owns Posen and Scoop NYC) and president and CEO of Sean John, has been consulting with Rodriguez for several months and will continue in that capacity until a successor is named. [WWD]
