Fisher + Baker, a boutique menswear brand crafting clothes with timeless style and outdoor sensibility, has hired Jessica Rush as senior account executive. In the newly created role, Rush will help hone the national retail sales strategy for the fast-growing label and build retail relationships with a focus on the central United States.

“Many young brands are going direct-to-consumer, but we are charting our own course and investing in the retail experience because we know our customers value a personal touch,” said Mike Arbeiter, president of Fisher + Baker. “Jess has a keen understanding of the better menswear market and brings a wealth of experience to the job. I’m confident she will make a great addition to the team.”

Rush comes to the position with an extensive background in sales, most recently working as an account executive at heritage brand Rodd & Gunn.

“I’m really looking forward to working with the Fisher + Baker team,” said Rush. “They’ve gained a lot of momentum in the­ last few years and the feedback on their 2018 line at both Outdoor Retailer and PROJECT has been phenomenal. It really speaks to the potential this brand has in the fashion and outdoor markets.”

Rush lives in Chicago and is a graduate of the International Academy of Design and Technology–Chicago where she specialized in fashion and apparel design.
