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.
