The executive began his career in France at the age of 13 at the Bata shoe chain. He eventually moved to Canada, where he launched the Charles David line in 1967. Twenty years later, he relocated to Los Angeles, where the company is currently based. Over his career, Malka has led Charles David through its forays into trendy sexy heels – still a focus for the brand – and helped it shift some of its manufacturing to China. In addition to being sold in 22 company-owned retail outlets, the label also is available in department stores, such as Nordstrom and more than 500 boutiques.
