American Apparel Inc. has promoted Adrian Kowalewski to executive vice president and chief financial officer.
As cfo, he succeeds Ken Cieply, who left the company in May. Cieply resigned after American Apparel’s controversial founder and chief executive officer, Dov Charney, said in a March Wall Street Journal interview that his cfo was a “complete loser” with “no credibility” in the retail apparel industry.
