Kathy Ireland's lifestyle design firm kathy Ireland Worldwide as formed a board of directors for the first time.
The initial members of the new board are Ireland, Erik Sterling, president and chief operating officer Stephen Roseberry, Rocco Ingemi, Thomas Meharey and John and Marilyn Moretz.
In conjunction with this, Roseberry has also made a duo of internal promotions. Twelve year kiWW veteran Ruben Torres will continue to serve as the COO's executive assistant and to Jon Carrasco, kiWW's global creative director and executive vice president, and will also assume the position of vice president of creative and operations.
Adrian Ponce, who has been with the company for seven years, will now take on the role of executive assistant to executive vice president of operations Steve Rosenblum.
"kathy ireland Worldwide was founded in 1993 and has flourished because of our emphasis on being of service, creativity, teamwork and dedication," says Roseberry. "Because everyone is running their departments efficiently, we have eliminated the position of chief operating officer, as that position is thankfully no longer needed."
