Feldenkreis Family Angers Perry Ellis for Moonlighting with Auto Parts

Fanny Hanono

Perry Ellis executives and employees are steamed as the Feldenkreis family, who owns the fashion company, is apparently doing double duty with GFX, an auto parts company, as reported by the New York Post. Fanny Hanono, daughter of Perry Ellis CEO George Feldenkreis, is chief administrative officer at Perry Ellis, but word has it she is spending more time with family-owned GFX.

One employee reported she spends most of her time at GFX and barely does any work for Perry Ellis. Investors have been upset with the family for some time, and some demand the company be sold, but a spokesperson denied rumors of Hanono’s moonlighting.

However, Hanono writes in her bio about being very active at GFX, traveling to Asia and being proud of the fact that she is a female in the male-dominated auto parts industry. In a PBS interview, she described her job at GFX as “truly one of the loves of my life.”

Hanono has defended her trips to Asia saying they came out of her own pocket and not at the expense of Perry Ellis. Some employees claim she had them work on GFX projects, but Hanono’s spokesperson has denied this claim.
