Charlotte Russe Holding Inc, a rapidly growing specialty retailer of fashionable, value-priced apparel and accessories for young women, has appointed Leonard H Mogil as a new member of its board of directors. This addition increases the size of the board to six members.

"Len brings a wealth of experience in many aspects of retail to our brand," said Bernard Zeichner, chairman and CEO. "His association with us is in keeping with Charlotte Russe's seeking out the best people to help us as we continue our rapid expansion."

Mogil, 55, is currently group executive vice president - retail operations for Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation, a leading marketer of men's and women's apparel and footwear. He will serve until the company's next annual meeting in 2002 when it is anticipated he will stand for election.
