Fernando Aguirre has resigned as a director of Levi Strauss & Co., effective Aug. 15.

Aguirre has been a director of the San Francisco-based jeans and sportswear firm since October 2010 and serves as chairman of the board’s finance and nominating, governance and corporate citizenship committees and as a member of its audit committee. He was elected to serve three years as a director at the firm’s annual meeting in April.

Aguirre was chairman, president and chief executive officer of Chiquita Brands International Inc. from 2004 to 2012 and earlier served in a variety of executive capacities at Procter & Gamble Co. He is a former director of Coca-Cola Enterprises and currently a director of Aetna Inc. and Barry Callebaut.

Levi’s board has 11 members.

In a regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the company said Aguirre’s resignation was “solely for personal reasons” and not a matter of any disagreements with the company.
