The company confirmed his departure, saying he left to pursue other opportunities, and there are no plans to replace him at this time.
Petruzello joined PEI in November 2011. Before that, he was president of the U.S. division of Buffalo, responsible for all domestic wholesale. He has also worked at Liz Claiborne and Tommy Hilfiger.
PEI will report its fourth-quarter earnings on Thursday. In late February, it said preliminary results were sharply below guidance and analysts’ expectations due to inclement weather, poor traffic and heavy promotions among its wholesale clients.
