Edmond Thomas is returning for his third tour of duty — and his second tenure as chief executive officer — at The Wet Seal Inc. after the troubled teen and contemporary specialty chain dismissed John Goodman from the post following a trying 20-month tenure.
Thomas was most recently a director of KarpReilly LLC, the private investment firm with holdings in Trina Turk and Adrianna Papell and numerous ventures outside fashion, after serving as president and ceo of Wet Seal from October 2007 to January 2011. He was president and chief operating officer of the Foothill Ranch, Calif.-based chain between 1992 and 2000 before joining Tilly’s as president and co-ceo.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
