NEW YORK—(USA) Robin Klingensmith, design director for Hodsoll Mckenzie and Travers brands at Zimmer + Rohde since 2015 has left the company, it was learned.

Several times a year, Klingensmith would visit Z+R headquarters in Germany to review her work with Andreas Zimmer, Z+R Principal and her boss.
Klingensmith worked out of the New York design office for Z+R which was expanded when she joined the company.

Apparently, that office has been closed. No further details are known at this time.
