American Apparel Executives Call for Charney’s Return

Updated on

Paula Schneider, American Apparel Inc.’s incoming chief executive officer, hasn’t even started work yet and she’s already facing a group of disgruntled managers.

More than 30 executives asked the board to reconsider their decision to fire former CEO and company founder Dov Charney, according to a letter obtained by Bloomberg News. Charney should be a part of the retailer’s future by helping the next CEO improve the chain because he is what “makes this thing tick,” the managers said.
