Jason Boling has been appointed chief financial officer of Cherokee Inc., succeeding Mark DiSiena, who has resigned to pursue other interests.
Boling, a certified public accountant, has been vice president of finance and accounting for DTS Inc., a high-tech audio company, since 2006. Earlier in his career, he was with Inamed Corp. and Deloitte & Touche LLP.
DiSiena joined Cherokee as cfo in late 2010 following a tenure as cfo of 4Medica and the establishment of his own finance and strategy consulting firm.
“Mark leaves behind a strong finance organization which will continue to support Cherokee’s growth objectives,” said Henry Stupp, chief executive officer of Sherman Oaks, Calif.-based Cherokee, to whom Boling will now report.
Cherokee owns the Cherokee, Sideout, Liz Lange and Carole Little trademarks and derives its revenues from direct-to-retail licensing arrangements with stores including Target in the U.S.; The TJX Cos. Inc. in the U.S., Canada and Europe; Tesco in the U.K., Ireland and several companies in central Europe; RT-Mart in China, Pick ‘n Pay in South Africa and Magnit in Russia.
@deciem is all about transparency and approachability. At this year’s WWD Digital Beauty Forum, the brand's co-CEO @nicolakilner said talking to customers directly about the ingredients in products and how they work is key. #wwdsummits #wwdbeauty
‘We didn't know how relevant our film would be when we were making it. When Steven [Rogers] wrote the script Trump wasn't president, class divide in America wasn't as evident as it is now, though it was present. The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.

Gemma Arterton is joined on the @bafta’s red carpet by Eileen Pullen and Gwen Davis, the two women who started the fight for the pay-gap. ‘They represent a normal person speaking out for what is right. Speak out, we will listen and anyone can speak out,’ said Arterton. #eebaftas #timesup #wwdeye (📸: David Fisher)
