16:13 EDTAPPAmerican Apparel terminates Charney for cause, names Schneider as CEO
The board of directors of American Apparel announced that it has appointed Paula Schneider as CEO, effective January 5. This appointment follows the termination of Dov Charney, former President and CEO, for cause in accordance with the terms of his employment agreement. Scott Brubaker, who has been serving as Interim CEO, will continue in the post until Schneider joins the company, after which he will remain as a consultant to ensure an orderly transition. Charney was suspended as president and CEO by the Board on June 18 for alleged misconduct and violations of company policy. Under terms of an agreement signed by Charney on July 9, a special committee of the board oversaw an internal investigation conducted by FTI Consulting into the allegations against Charney. Based on this investigation, the special committee determined that it would not be appropriate for Charney to be reinstated as CEO or an officer or employee of the company. While under suspension as CEO, Charney had been serving as a consultant to the Company. This relationship has now been terminated.
