Founder, Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation
For over 20 years, Tommy Hilfiger has brought classic, cool American apparel to consumers around the world. His designs give time-honored classics a fresh look for today's consumers, and his discerning taste has provided the foundation for the growth of a global brand. Under Hilfiger's guidance, vision and leadership as Principal Designer, and under the business direction of CEO Fred Gehring, the Tommy Hilfiger Group has become one of very few globally recognized designer brands offering men's, women's and children's apparel, sportswear, denim and a range of licensed products such as accessories, fragrances and home furnishings. Hilfiger launched the Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation in 1995 to help empower America's youth. Through the foundation, Hilfiger is actively involved in a number of charities and causes, including the Washington, D.C. Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation, The Fresh Air Fund (Camp Tommy) and the Race to Erase MS (Multiple Sclerosis).
