Smack Sportswear has hired the former CFO of True Religion Apparel (TRLG) as the company’s new CFO.
Sigler, President and CEO of Smack Sportswear, stated, “We have found
the person we were looking for … Charles A. Lesser, former CFO of True
Religion Apparel. After reviewing a number of candidates, and carefully
examining their records, it was True Religion Apparel’s success while
Charles Lesser was CFO that caught my attention. He was CFO when the
company first traded on the OTC-BB with roughly the same revenues we
have presently. During his tenure as CFO at True Religion, their sales
skyrocketed to $160 million in 2007 (when he left the company). I
believe that the Smack Sportswear brand has more world-wide appeal today
than True Religion had in 2003, and that we can achieve similar success
with Charles as our CFO.”
Prior to True Religion, Lesser was an
officer at various private and public companies including Weider
Sporting Goods. During his three year tenure as Weider’s CFO, the
company’s revenues grew 300 percent and experienced 5x profit growth.
Sportswear, based in Torrance, CA, is a supplier of custom designed
