Teen sportswear retailer Pacific Sunwear of California has promoted Alfred Chang to vice president of men's merchandising and design.

He succeeds senior vice president of men's merchandising Charlie Mescher, who has resigned.

Chang, who has been with the company since 2006, most recently served as vice president of men's merchandising.

"Alfred is a strong merchant and one of our rising talents, with a deep passion for brands, fashion and California Lifestyle," said Gary Schoenfeld, president and CEO.

"Brands are once again the cornerstone of our men's business. I look forward to working closely with Alfred and the rest of our men's team to further PacSun's brand relationships and continue to build upon our 30-year heritage."
