HauteLook Hires Three
Los Angeles-based HauteLook, the heavily backed private fashion sales website headed by Adam Bernhard, said today that it has hired on three new executives on the heels of its recent, $31M Series C funding. The firm said it has added Arthur Lewis as General Merchandising Manager, Tim Davis as Director of Men's Merchandising, and Vicky Kalish as Director of Food and Wine. Davis and Kalish report to Lewis, and Lewis reports to Bernhard. Lewis was most recently a Senior Vice President at Gap's Old Navy Division; Davis was at Neiman Marcus, and Kalish has been at Williams-Sonoma and Octopus Publishing. HauteLook operates an online private sales business, where email subscribers are offered daily deals on fashion brands. The firm is backed by Insight Venture Partners, and according to Bernhard is profitable and expanding.
