Perry Ellis re-appoints Joe Arriola to board of directors
Perry Ellis International announced on Thursday the return of Joe Arriola to its board of directors, effective immediately.
Arriola served as director of the Perry Ellis board from 2006 until 2015, choosing not to stand for re-election at the company’s annual shareholders meeting held in July so he could focus more of his time and attention on his responsibilities as Chairman of the Public Health Trust.
According to a company statement, “given the significant progress that the Public Health Trust has achieved over the past six months in connection with such expansion plans, Mr. Arriola has advised the Perry Ellis Board that he believes he can once again dedicate the requisite time and attention to serving on the Board”.
Jane DeFlorio, the Perry Ellis Board's lead independent director, said: "On behalf of the entire Board, we are extremely pleased that Mr. Arriola has agreed to return to the Perry Ellis Board. As we prepare to implement next year our previously announced leadership succession plan and strive for a transition that is as seamless as possible to our associates, customers and shareholders, we look forward to once again benefiting from Joe's extensive knowledge of Perry Ellis and its operations."
Joe Arriola, who has also worked in the past as President of Mullmantur and as Manager of Miami City, has been appointed as independent director and his term will expire at the 2016 annual meeting of shareholders.
