Bill Clinton Headlines Lauder Breast Cancer Luncheon... Narciso Departure...

The former president stayed off the campaign stump at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation annual luncheon at the Waldorf Astoria.

NARCISO DEPARTURE: Kathy Kalesti, Narciso Rodriguez’s longtime business partner, is leaving the company effective Friday. “I’m grateful for all of her efforts on behalf of the company and support her decision to pursue other interests,” Rodriguez said.

Kalesti joined the company in 1997, and was senior vice president of sales and marketing until she assumed the president title in December 2009. “Working with Narciso has been a great experience,” she said.

The company will replace Kalesti. Robert J. Wichser, the former principal at The Yucaipa Cos. and president and chief executive officer of Sean John, has been consulting with Rodriguez for several months and will continue to do so until the company names a successor.
