LOS ANGELES — Dov Charney, chairman and chief executive officer of American Apparel Inc., said his company is on track to generate record sales this year and is sticking to his domestic manufacturing model.
Charney, who spoke to WWD following the company’s annual meeting here Thursday, has projected the retailer could post revenues of about $600 million this year, an increase of roughly 7 percent from its last revenue peak of $558.77 million in 2009. He confirmed the firm would meet its guidance for adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization this year of $32 million to $40 million, up from $14.5 million last year.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
