Arnold Brant Silverstone has been the President of Samuelsohn Limited since May 2010.  Since the Fall 2011 collection, the first under Silverstone's leadership and the most successful season in the company's history, Samuelsohn's sales close to doubled, and the line launched in the US at major luxury retailers Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom.  Silverstone was named President and Chief Creative Officer of Hickey Freeman, when the iconic menswear brand was purchased by Samuelsohn in 2013.
