Isaac Dabah, CEO of Delta Galil, was first introduced into the world of business when he joined in his father’s importing company when Dabah was in his twenties.
In 1993 he invested $5 million in the Gloria Vanderbilt jeans brand. After seven years he was able to rebuild the brand, selling it in 2002 for $150 million. Three years later Isaac Dabah bought a 23 percent stake in Delta Galil, also an apparel company, specializing in undergarments. In 2005 he became a director, and after acquiring more of the company, became its CEO in 2008.
The Delta Galil Company has become a global presence in the intimate apparel sector under the guidance and leadership of Dabah. Innovation is the driving force at Delta Galil. The company has trademarked their “Body Before Fabric” philosophy, which considers as of prime importance the way fabric interacts with the body surface to create ultimate comfort and fit.
Today the company has an international presence in over 40 countries, with the US and European markets representing 59 and 28 percent of their business, respectively. Delta’s products populate such well-known brands as Victoria’s Secret, Calvin Klein and Lacoste.
In addition, Delta has also collaborated with Nike, operating a cutting-edge technical center in Beaverton, Oregon, on their behalf
