Perry Ellis elects Barry Gluck to BoD

Jun '08
Perry Ellis International announced the election of Barry S. Gluck as a new independent member to the Company's Board of Directors, bringing the total number of directors to nine and the number of independent directors to seven.

Mr. Gluck enjoyed a successful 18-year career in retail with a strong emphasis in merchandising and store planning. He held numerous senior executive positions at Federated, Dayton-Hudson Corporation, Macy's and Ross Stores Inc, where he worked from 1989 until his retirement in January of 2007 as Executive Vice-President in charge of merchandising, marketing and store planning/allocation.

During his tenure at Ross Stores, Mr. Gluck successfully managed and developed planning, procurement and sales, increasing gross profit for Men's, Young Men's, Children's, Lingerie, Accessories, Cosmetics and Family Footwear divisions.

“Barry's extensive experience in the retail industry makes him an ideal candidate for our Board of Directors. I look forward to his insights and expect his strong merchandising experience to assist us greatly as we accelerate our retail store development and several direct to consumer initiatives both in the US and oversees,” commented George Feldenkreis, Chairman and CEO.

Barry also has a strong record of giving back to the community. He is Managing Director of the Fallen Angels Foundation, a non-profit organization he founded in 2002, with the objective of helping homeless, abandoned, battered and abused women, children, and animals.

He is an active benefactor of the University of Notre Dame, where he established scholarship endowments at the Mendoza College of Business and the Urban Plunge program through the Center for Social Concerns.

Barry is also an active member of the Joyce Athletics Grants-in-Aid program for student athletes as well as being involved in Notre Dame's MBA mentoring program. Barry graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in political science and international relations.
