The Company also announced today that Kevin Corning has joined the Company as Executive Vice President, International.

“We have strengthened our leadership team with a very talented international executive,” said Mr. Casey. “Kevin has a track record of success in Asia and Latin America, which we believe are markets rich in growth opportunities for our brands.”
As part of its initiative to move its Retail operations from Connecticut to Georgia, the Company is announcing a transition in Retail leadership. James Petty, who has led the Retail business since 2007, is retiring. Jeffrey Williams has been promoted to Senior Vice President of Retail, and will be responsible for leading the Company’s Retail operations.
Mr. Williams has been a senior executive of the Retail team for the past five years, responsible for, among other things, strategic planning, process improvement, and planning and allocation.
