FullBeauty names Jim Fogarty as new CEO
FullBeauty Brands Inc., a retailer dedicated to plus-sized women and men, has appointed Jim Fogarty as chief executive officer and added him to the company’s board of directors, effective immediately.
Fogarty succeeds Emilie Arel, who has resigned from her role as CEO and as a member of the board. Arel was first appointed in 2017.
“I am excited to build upon the team’s hard work to position the company for further success by leveraging FullBeauty’s legacy strengths, while we also lean into new opportunities,” Fogarty said. “I look forward to working with the talented team to continue evolving as a multi-channel, customer-focused, direct-to-consumer retailer that is optimized for the future.”
Prior to joining FullBeauty, Fogarty most recently served as chief executive officer of Orchards Brands Corporation, a direct-to-consumer multichannel retailer with 13 brands including Blair, Haband, Drapers & Damon's, Norm Thompson and Sahalie, among others.
Before his time with Orchards Brands, he held a variety of executive roles, previously serving as chief executive officer and director of Charming Shoppes; chief financial officer of Levi Strauss & Co; chief financial officer of The Warnaco Group; and president and COO of Lehman Brothers Holdings following its Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.
The new appointment follows FullBeauty’s filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy earlier this year, as part of a restructuring agreement.
