Kimberly Flaster has been promoted from vice president to senior vice president of fashion at HL Group, a newly created role. She will oversee all fashion-related business, including client services and the development of fashion accounts.
Flaster was tapped for the role for her “depth of experience in public relations” and “innate perspective for fashion and luxury businesses,” said CEO Robert Harwood-Matthews. He credits her with helping to expand the PR firm’s fashion clientele.
Before joining HL Group in 2011 as managing director, Flaster held senior PR positions at Carolina Herrera, Gucci America, Nina Ricci, and Christian Dior. She also served as PR director at Linda Gaunt Communications and as a communications consultant for Bergdorf Goodman. This summer, she was recognized by Strathmore’s Who’s Who Worldwide Edition for her marketing achievements.
