The board seat vacated by George Zimmer will be assumed by retail veteran Allen Questrom.
On Wednesday, The Men’s Wearhouse said Questrom, the onetime chief executive officer of Federated Department Stores and Neiman Marcus, has been appointed to its board, effective immediately.
Zimmer, Men’s Wearhouse’s founder and its former ceo, resigned from his board seat last month after he was terminated as executive chairman following a bitter falling out with current management.
Doug Ewert, Men’s Wearhouse’s ceo, said Wednesday that Questrom “brings extensive experience in our industry, highlighted by his service as the ceo of several large publicly traded retailers. Allen’s expertise in customer service, merchandising, marketing and finance will be a great benefit for all of our stakeholders.”
The disclosure Wednesday did not include a new date for the company’s annual meeting, which was postponed during the battle with Zimmer.
