Joseph Cornely 3rd has resigned as executive vice president and director of store development for Casual Male Retail Group, the big and tall retail chain.

The company disclosed the resignation, effective 2 January, in a supplemental filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday (30 November).

Cornely, 54 when the company filed its last annual proxy statement, has been with Casual Male for 34 years. He was promoted to his most recent post in 2003, the year after Casual Male was acquired by Designs Inc.

The combined entity has since been renamed Casual Male Retail Group and is the largest operator of big and tall men's wear stores in the US.

Casual Male Retail Group earlier this year changed its store nameplate to Casual Male XL from Casual Male Big & Tall.
