True Religion Apparel has announced that the board of directors has appointed Michael Buckley as its new chief executive officer, effective immediately. Buckley was previously president of the company from 2006 to 2010. He will be responsible for implementing the future vision and roadmap for True Religion and will report to the board of directors.

Buckley is a leading retail and consumer products executive with over 30 years’ successful industry experience both domestically and internationally in growing brands and creating value. He most recently was chief executive officer of Differential Brands. Prior to Differential, from 2011-2016 he was chief executive officer of Robert Graham Designs until its sale to Differential Brands for $180 million. Prior to Robert Graham, from 2006-2010 as president of True Religion Apparel, sales grew from $100 million to over $300 million, EBITDA from $30 million to over $90 million. In both 2008 and 2009, True Religion was ranked the #1 most profitable US publicly traded apparel company out of all US publicly traded apparel companies, as measured by after tax profit margin, the company said in a press release.

“We are extremely excited and proud to welcome Buckley back to True Religion Apparel. He brings years of experience in the men’s and women’s denim and sportswear arena, including his former role as president of True Religion. Buckley has had many accomplishments in the apparel industry over the past thirty+ years and he brings a well-rounded and highly relevant skill set to the True Religion leadership team,” Gene Davis, chairman of the board said.

“I am thrilled to return to True Religion and lead the company as its new chief executive officer at this exciting time in the brand’s evolution. I look forward to working with the board of directors, Farla Efros and HRC advisory, and the entire True Religion team,” Buckley said.
