Fashion Industry Gallery has named Matt Roth chief executive officer and promoted Emma Greathouse to director. 

Roth, a FIG investor, has worked with the venue’s strategy for several years in his former position of vice president of chief financial officer of Brook Partners, which owns and operates the venue. Roth is now based at FIG. 

Greathouse was sales manager and will continue attracting new designers to the venue with added responsibilities for tenant relations. She succeeded Shelli Mers, who left FIG after five years to move back to Seattle to be closer to her family, the company said. 

John Sughrue, co-owner of Brook Partners and a founder of FIG, previously supervised the business but wasn’t based on site. He is now FIG chairman.
