TARRANT ADDS DIRECTORS: Los Angeles-based Tarrant Apparel Group said Stephane Farouze and Larry Russ will join the company’s board as independent members. Farouze most recently served as the global head of sales structuring at Societe Generale Asset Management following a position as BNP’s head of foreign exchanges for the Italian market. For the past 16 years, Russ has served as managing partner of the Los Angeles-based law firm, Russ, August & Kabat, building its client roster of apparel firms and its intellectual property practice. Heightening the six-member board’s transparency, the moves come after Tarrant announced it would begin leasing its Mexican production facilities and focus on design and brand collaborations with retailers. Tarrant chairman and chief executive Gerard Guez said the shift to a landlord model is expected to generate $11 million in annual revenues for six years.
