Now that William L. McComb, chief executive officer of Liz Claiborne Inc., has a handle on the company’s debt, he’s not about to hand over too much control of his brands to outside merchants.
The company — which posted a $60.6 million first-quarter loss, but topped sales expectations and saw its stock shoot up 9.5 percent Thursday — now has a solidly retail profile. And McComb said he is taking a friendly, yet calculated approach with its wholesale customers given the company’s past experience with Juicy Couture.
