Based on a preliminary vote count, all three directors nominated by Perry Ellis were elected to the Perry Ellis International’s board of directors.

In a press release, Perry Ellis said, Oscar Feldenkreis, Bruce Klatsky and Michael Rayden were elected to the board of directors at the 2015 annual meeting of shareholders.

According to the apparel marketer, all three of Perry Ellis' director nominees received overwhelming support from shareholders and each was elected with extremely wide margins.

Bruce Klatsky is the former CEO of Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation (PVH) and during his term, led the transformation of a 120 year-old shirt company into one of the largest apparel and footwear companies.

Among his many achievements at PVH was the acquisition of the Calvin Klein brand in one of the most transformative transactions in the apparel industry to date.

Michael Rayden is the former CEO of Tween Brands, Inc., a leading apparel specialty retailer with close to 1,000 retail stores throughout the United States, Canada and overseas.

Rayden has also served as the chief executive officer of other well-known apparel retailers including Pacific Sunwear of California, Stride Rite and Eddie Bauer.

Oscar Feldenkreis, currently serves as president and chief operating officer of Perry Ellis and as previously announced, will become chief executive officer of Perry Ellis in January 2016.

Feldenkreis has been involved in all aspects of Perry Ellis' operations for over 35 years and joined what was then Supreme International as an account executive in 1980.

He was elected president and chief operating officer in February 1993 and elected vice chairman of the Board in March 2005.

He has played a key role in expanding the scope of the business beyond private-label distribution as Perry Ellis successfully branched into branded men's and women's apparel.

His extensive experience in the apparel business, including sourcing, marketing, branding, sales and manufacturing, has enabled Perry Ellis to become one of the leaders in the industry.

"We are extremely proud of what we have accomplished over the past half century, particularly the value that we have created for our shareholders and other stakeholders," said CEO George Feldenkreis.

"We have grown from being a small family-owned importer of guayaberas and children's wear in 1967 to being a publicly-held international designer and distributor of globally recognised apparel brands,” the CEO added.

Perry Ellis International is a leading designer, distributor and licensor of a broad line of high quality men's and women's apparel, accessories and fragrances.

The company's markets dress and casual shirts, golf sportswear, sweaters, dress pants, casual pants and shorts, jeanswear, active wear, dresses and men's and women's swimwear. (AR)
