Vince announced Friday that Mark Brody has been appointed interim chief financial officer. Brody replaces Lisa Klinger, who resigned from the company, effectively immediately.
Most recently, Brody was managing director and group chief financial officer at Sun Capital Partners, Inc., where he was responsible for the business unit operational and financial oversight of Vince, as well as Gordmans Stores, The Limited and Kellwood. He worked extensively on the operational and financial separation of Vince from Kellwood, and on the related IPO and secondary offering.
In a release, Vince CEO Jill Granoff, commented, “We are delighted that Mark has agreed to step into the CFO role on an interim basis while we conduct a search for a permanent replacement. He has been a director on our Board since 2008 and we believe he is uniquely qualified to serve in this role given his in-depth knowledge of the Vince business and organization, as well as his strong financial and operational background. I look forward to partnering with Mark and leveraging his valuable insights into our business as we continue pursuing our key growth initiatives.”
She added, “We thank Lisa for her numerous contributions to Vince, including her support during our IPO process and the terrific team she has built, and wish her well in her future endeavors.”
