True Religion has named board member Chelsea A Grayson its interim chief executive officer, following John Ermatinger’s decision to step down as chief executive officer. Grayson will stop serving as chair of the Audit Committee but will continue to be on True Religion’s board of directors. Meanwhile, True Religion board will identify a permanent CEO.

"As a board member for the past year, Chelsea has been instrumental in helping True Religion evolve the brand," said Gene Davis, chair of the True Religion board. "We are fortunate to have someone of Chelsea's caliber and experience step up to lead the company as we continue to innovate our products and customer experience. In addition, we would also like to recognise and thank John for his incredible leadership and dedication to the brand."

Grayson said, "As a Los Angeles native, I am honored to have been chosen to lead an iconic brand like Los Angeles-based True Religion. I look forward to continuing the momentum started with recent initiatives like adding Bella Hadid as a millennial face of the brand and our partnership with global sports juggernaut, Manchester United."

While Grayson serves as interim CEO, the True Religion board intends to conduct a process to identify a permanent CEO.

Before joining the board of directors of True Religion last year, Grayson was the CEO and a board member of American Apparel. She also sits on the board of directors of Delta Dental of California (where she is a member of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee), and the advisory board of Marca Global. (SV)
