Kellwood Company has elected Robert (Bob) Siegel to the Company's Board of Directors effective November 1, 2007, according to Robert C. Skinner, Jr., chairman, president and chief executive officer.

A seasoned executive with over 40 years in the retail and apparel industry, Siegel brings an extensive background in management consulting and firsthand brand building experience.

He also served as chairman, president and CEO at Stride Rite Corporation, and as president of all designer brands at Levi Strauss & Company, where he ascended to president of menswear. While at Levi Strauss & Company, he created and introduced the Dockers brand.

"On behalf of the Kellwood Board of Directors and our entire management team, I want to welcome Bob. He is a proven leader with an impressive track record and notable career. We look forward to benefiting from his insight and guidance," commented Skinner.

He succeeds Robert Baer who retired from theBoard in June 2007. Kellwood's Board has nine directors: eight independent directors and one management director. He will become a member of the compensation committee.
