Perry Ellis appoints Joe Arriola as new member of BoD

Dec '15
Perry Ellis International, Inc., a leading designer, distributor, and licensor of a broad line of high quality men's and women's apparel, accessories and fragrances, has appointed Mr. Joe Arriola to the Perry Ellis Board of Directors effective immediately.

Arriola is a former member of the Perry Ellis Board, having served as a director from 2006 until 2015. He chose not to stand for re-election to the Perry Ellis Board at the Company's 2015 Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on July 17, 2015 so he could focus more of his time and attention on his responsibilities as chairman of the Public Health Trust. Arriola brings to the Perry Ellis Board not only extensive experience as an accomplished executive, entrepreneur, governmental leader and public company board member, but also his extensive historical knowledge of Perry Ellis and its operations, knowledge that the Perry Ellis Board believes will be very beneficial as the company plans to implement its previously announced leadership succession, according to a press release.

Jane DeFlorio, the Perry Ellis Board's lead independent director said, “On behalf of the entire Board, we are extremely pleased that Arriola has agreed to return to the Perry Ellis Board. As we prepare to implement next year our previously announced leadership succession plan and strive for a transition that is as seamless as possible to our associates, customers and shareholders, we look forward to once again benefiting from Joe's extensive knowledge of Perry Ellis and its operations.”

George Feldenkreis, chairman and chief executive officer of Perry Ellis said, “During his nine years on the Perry Ellis Board, Joe Arriola was an exemplary board member who spent a lot of time and effort to understand the Company and brought incredible wisdom, experience and intellect to our business and made countless valuable contributions to Perry Ellis.”

Arriola said, “I am excited to be returning to the Perry Ellis Board. With the election to the Perry Ellis Board last summer of apparel industry veterans Bruce Klatsky and Michael Rayden, the Perry Ellis Board today boasts one of the strongest boards in the apparel industry and I will be honoured to have the opportunity to work alongside such industry leaders as we work together to drive Perry Ellis' next era of growth and shareholder value creation.” (GK)
