LeAnn Nealz is stepping down as president and chief creative officer at Juicy Couture. Her last day in the office will be March 1.
The brand — which is still best known for its track suit heyday — has been struggling for traction for some time. Paul Blum, who has previously worked at Kenneth Cole Productions Inc. and David Yurman, was brought on board as chief executive officer in December to turn the brand around. Juicy is owned by Fifth & Pacific Cos. Inc., which is also the corporate parent to Kate Spade and Lucky Brand.
