Teen apparel retailer Aeropostale announced Friday that Emilia Fabricant, executive vice president of Aeropostale, is leaving the company.
Fabricant joined the company in 2012 under then-CEO Thomas P. Johnson’s leadership. She was responsible for the brand’s design, merchandising and production.
In a statement, Aeropostale CEO Julian R. Geiger said, “Over the past ten months, we have carefully instituted structural changes to our organization that enabled us to balance levels of responsibility and to run our business more effectively. In conjunction with these changes, I believe that the strength of our senior design and merchandising teams positions us well on our path to profitability.”
Aeropostale’s senior merchandising team will report to Geiger, effective immediately. There are no plans to replace Fabricant at this time.
Geiger added that he believes the merchandising, organizational and operational changes the company has made since last year will have a positive effect during the next back-to-school and holiday shopping seasons.
