“We are thrilled to have found the right partner to manage the expansion of the IZOD brand into Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and other key South Pacific islands,” said Ken Wyse, President of Licensing for PVH Corp.
“Axis Golf Pty. Limited is a proven leader with extensive knowledge and expertise in men’s apparel and accessories, both in the wholesale and retail channels and we look forward to jointly building a successful partnership in the South Pacific.”
In 2012, IZOD signed three PGA TOUR players – U.S. Open Champion Webb Simpson, two-time PGA Tour winner Scott Piercy and rising star Spencer Levin—to multi-year partnerships to form “Team IZOD.”
“We are elated about our strategic partnership with PVH for the IZOD brand in the South Pacific,” said Denis Brosnan, Managing Director of Axis Golf Pty. Limited.
“IZOD is an iconic American brand with a colourful, sporty image and a solid reputation for delivering fashion and value to consumers worldwide. The versatility of the product line allows for distribution in the sports, lifestyle and leisurewear segments.”
