“Jim has made considerable progress in executing our turnaround strategy. We have been impressed with his leadership and results orientation during his interim assignment and are highly confident in his ability to lead the Company. We look forward to the future successes that Mr. Wiggett will bring to the Bebe brand,” he added.

Wiggett said, “I am delighted with the opportunity to serve as CEO of Bebe. I have tremendous respect for the heritage of the Bebe brand and have developed a real affection for the organization. I believe we can be successful both in our turnaround strategy and in positioning our company for long term growth.”
