Denise Seegal, president of VF Corp.'s sportswear coalition, is leaving the company less than a month after VF said Nautica women's sportswear will be closed.
VF said it would name Seegal's successor in the near future. Sources speculated that the Greensboro, N.C.-based firm could promote Karen Murray, who was hired in September as president of Nautica men's sportswear and Nautica Jeans Co. Murray and Seegal worked together at Liz Claiborne Inc., where Murray most recently was group president of men's wear, midtier, international alliances and licensing.
