Wet Seal’s chief executive officer, John Goodman, is taking on more responsibilities as a result of a workforce reduction and cost-savings initiatives at the teen retailer.
Goodman, who took over the ceo post a few weeks ago, will assume direct leadership over store operations, e-commerce and construction functions. Steve Benrubi, chief financial officer, will add information technology and real estate responsibilities to his existing duties.
