Tailored Brands, previously known as Men's Wearhouse, has appointed former Gap executive Jack Calandra to the role of finance chief. 

Calandra takes over from current CFO Jon Kimmins who is leaving to pursue other interests. Kimmins will remain with the company through to the end of the calendar year and will assist with the transition through to March. 

With an extensive background in the retail and consumer products industry, Calandra joins Tailored Brands from Gap Inc, where he was most recently senior vice president, corporate finance and investor relations. His career with the apparel giant spanned more than a decade and included roles as CFO of Banana Republic and CFO of Gap Direct. 

Prior to joining Gap, Calandra served 11 years at Unilever's North America division where he held progressively senior accounting and financial leadership roles and advised management on strategic acquisitions. 

In his new role he will oversee corporate finance, accounting, treasury and investor relations. He will also serve on the company's executive committee.

"Throughout his career, Jack has demonstrated dynamic and strategic financial leadership at Fortune 500 retail and consumer brands and I am pleased to welcome him to Tailored Brands," says CEO Doug Ewert. "He will be an exceptional addition to our team as we leverage our position as a leading authority on menswear to deliver an unparalleled customer experience in today's omnichannel world."

Last week, Tailored Brands revealed mixed third-quarter results as it moved to a profit but booked lower sales as a result of a weak performance from its Men's Wearhouse brand.
