In this role, Mr. Gardner will oversee all key aspects of the business which is expected to launch at the beginning of 2009. Mr. Gardner will report to Maurice Reznik, Maidenform's President.

Most recently, Mr. Gardner was Vice President of Sales for Maidenform's Department Store Business.

We are excited to maximize Rob's strong retail and branded sales background to penetrate new distribution opportunities for us, principally in high-end department and specialty stores worldwide, that will drive additional sales growth for the Company in 2009 and beyond.

The Donna Karan and DKNY license opportunity will be another vehicle to enhance our financial performance with powerful brands that bring meaningful innovation to the marketplace globally resulting in strong product differentiation."
