Tom Casey has resigned as acting president of American Apparel, effective Nov. 18. His exit is two months shy of his original 15-month employment agreement that he signed when he joined the Los Angeles-based retailer in October 2010, and comes on the heels of two other high-profile departures from the company since last month.
Dov Charney, chairman and chief executive officer of American Apparel, declined to elaborate on Casey’s departure when reached by phone. He also declined to say whether the president position would be refilled. “We have a large management team,” he noted. “I wish Tom Casey the best.”
