Barth and Dreyfuss grows

BURBANK — Following gains in retail placements for shipment of new programs this fall, Barth and Dreyfuss of California is building up its staff to support growth.

The recent fallout of competitor The Cecil Saydah Co. (CSC) has contributed in part to Barth and Dreyfuss' boost. After experiencing an admittedly soft second quarter, Barth and Dreyfuss found, at CSC's expense, new opportunities in key retail channels for the third quarter, particularly at mass and mid-tier department stores. And as a result, the company was also able to bring on board several former CSC sourcing and accounting staffers.

Bill Cashel, formerly senor vice president of sourcing for CSC, has been assigned to the same post — a restructured position for Barth and Dreyfuss. He reports to Buddy Munday, CEO.

Gulshen Kaur, formerly logistics administrator at CSC, has been hired to hold the same post — also restructured — at Barth and Dreyfuss. She reports to Cashel, who was also her supervisor at CSC.

Anghela Ormanyan has been hired as staff accountant, the same post she held at CSC, and a restructured post for Barth and Dreyfuss. She reports to Karthi Ghopal, chief financial officer.

Barringer added that the company is currently interviewing more CSC alumnae.
