David Danziger, who along with Allan Mayer was one of the last two holdovers from the board that ousted American Apparel Inc. founder Dov Charney, resigned from his post as a director of the company on Sunday.
Danziger had been on the board since 2011 and briefly became co-chairman with Mayer after Charney was suspended amid allegations of misconduct last July.
The founder was fired as ceo in December. Colleen Brown took the reins as chairman that same month.
As ceo, Schneider has also been working to win hearts and minds among the company’s rank and file.
According to an internal memo obtained by WWD, Schneider on Friday noted that results of a survey of more than 1,800 of the company’s workers showed the desire for paid sick leave, a retirement benefit plan and improved health benefits.
She said the company was implementing paid sick leave while working to set up a 401(k) plan and boost health benefits.
“We have a new strategic direction to turn this company around, and a key part of our success is you,” Schneider said. “Together we can make this the best place to work.”
