Jul '12
The Men's Wearhouse announced that Neill P. Davis, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, has notified the Company that he intends to leave on August 2, 2012 to accept the position of President with Francesca's Holdings Corporation, a women's specialty retailer where he has served as a director for the past five years.

Doug Ewert, Men's Wearhouse President and CEO, stated, "Neill has been an integral part of our senior management team for the past 15 years and he will be missed. We wish him well in his new endeavor."

Diana Wilson, age 64, who is a Men's Wearhouse's Executive Vice President and has also served as Chief Accounting Officer for the past nine years, will succeed Davis as Interim Chief Financial Officer and will work closely in the area of investor relations with David Edwab, the Company's Vice Chairman and previous CFO from 1991 to 1999. 

Ewert added, "We are very fortunate to have both Diana and David available to assist the Company as it carefully considers how best to fill the Chief Financial Officer position on a permanent basis."

Ms. Wilson has served as the Company's Chief Accounting Officer since March 2003. She joined the Company in March 1999 as Corporate Controller, following 27 years in public accounting, and has most recently been closely involved with the Company's UK corporate apparel operations since the acquisition of Dimensions and Alexandra in August 2010.  Ms. Wilson is a graduate of Rice University and a CPA.

Additionally, Kelly Dilts, age 43, Vice President, Finance and Accounting, will become the Chief Accounting Officer.  Ewert commented, "Kelly has been with the Company since 1998 and has been co-leader of our financial strategies group for the past ten years.  She works closely with merchandising, store operations, distribution and other functional groups and has been instrumental in developing our support services teams in Houston."

Founded in 1973, Men's Wearhouse is one of North America's largest specialty retailers of men's apparel with 1,162 stores.  The Men's Wearhouse, Moores and K&G stores carry a full selection of men's designer, brand name and private label suits, sport coats, furnishings and accessories and Men's Wearhouse and Tux stores carry a limited selection.
