Shareholders of R.G. Barry Corporation re-elected four directors and approved an amendment to the Company's long-term incentive plan during the annual meeting of shareholders Thursday.

Board members Janice Page, Harvey Weinberg and R.G. Barry Chief Executive Officer and President Greg Tunney were re-elected to three-year terms as directors; and board member David Lauer was re-elected to a two-year term as a director during the morning meeting held at the Company's suburban Columbus, Ohio headquarters. The election of four directors to staggered terms facilitated a previously announced reduction in board size from 10 to nine members.

Ms. Page, a director since 2000, is an independent retail consultant and former senior group vice president for Sears, Roebuck and Co. Mr. Weinberg, a director since 2001, is the chief executive officer of Optimer Brands, a textile technology company; and is the former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hartmarx Corporation, clothiers. Mr. Lauer, a director since 2003, is the former acting chief financial officer of The Ohio State University Medical Center; the former president and chief operating officer of Bank One, Columbus; and former managing partner of the Columbus office of Deloitte & Touche.

The update to the Company's Amended and Restated 2005 Long-Term Incentive Plan approved by shareholders Thursday added 500,000 shares to the total number of common shares authorized for use as part of the Company's long-term compensation program.

Following shareholder voting, Mr. Tunney recapped the Company's 2009 operating results, which placed it in the top quartile of public footwear companies, and talked about the organization's success in executing its 2007-09 strategic plan. He also introduced the Company's new three-year 2010-12 growth strategy to meeting participants.

R.G. Barry Corporation, the Dearfoams company, is one of the world's leading developers and marketers of accessory footwear.
