Top 40 supplier Hartwell Classic
Apparel (asi/60135) has chosen
Rick Cesere as its new CEO. The
move comes after a successful
year in which he helped introduced

company as well as several other
new initiatives, including three-day
shipping and three-day turnaround.
Cesere joined Hartwell in 2004
as executive vice president after
holding senior-level positions
at several other industry apparel
companies. He is credited with
helping to revitalize the company
after several difficult years. “We
want to continue for the next
several years and be a good,
steady profitable company,” Cesere
says. “Most of that is
going to be done with world-class
customer service, a full-service
platform, quick decoration, large
size ranges and competitive pricing.”
