Apparel and sportswear marketer Haggar Corp has named Jim Lewis as the company's new chief executive officer.

After spending ten years as a merchandising executive at Haggar, Lewis spent six
years with Liz Claiborne, where he most recently served as group president of men's and women's branded apparel.
            
Lewis said: "The first order of business will be to revitalise this brand, focusing on products, marketing and customers."

Lewis replaces Joe Haggar III and Frank Bracken, who stepped down after their successful sale of the company yesterday to an investor group led by
Infinity Associates.

Haggar Clothing Co, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Haggar Corp, is a leading marketer of men's casual and dress apparel and women's sportswear,
with global headquarters in Dallas, Texas.
