Division Six Sports, Inc., the wholesaler of branded off price footwear, apparel, accessories and hard goods, continues expansion with the addition of Danya Karoly to its New York-based buying office and showroom, it was announced by President Ira Leibowitz.  Karoly will report to recently appointed Chief Merchandising Officer, Robert Kimmell.
Danya is a very creative merchandise oriented buyer with strong analytical skills and knowledge of industry trends, said Leibowitz.  We are looking forward to utilizing her capabilities to help drive growth and further enhance our sales.
Karoly brings more than 15 years of experience across the ladies, mens and junior apparel industries, as well as sportswear and footwear.  Before joining Division Six, she worked for Mandees and Annie Sez where she developed key accounts and business relationships for the company while expanding the vendor matrix.  Prior to that, Karoly spent several years as the senior buyer for junior sportswear, ladies shoes and mens apparel at Burlington Coat Factory.
We are excited to have Danya join our team, said Kimmell.  She has a solid understanding of strategic sales planning and product placement that will be beneficial to Division Six.
In her new role, Karolys primary focus will be working with footwear and apparel vendors in the womens contemporary, missy and junior categories, while expanding Division Sixs overall east coast presence.
