Casual apparel maker Tarrant Apparel Group has promoted Patrick Chow to the position of chief financial officer.

Mr Chow, who previously served as treasurer of the company, replaces Scott Briskie, who has resigned to pursue other opportunities. The company said Mr Briskie would remain with Tarrant on a consulting basis to assist with the transition and year-end reporting requirements.

Gerard Guez, chairman of Tarrant Apparel Group stated: "I would like to thank Scott Briskie for his enormous contributions to our company. Scott has helped us efficiently transform our Mexico operations into the country's first vertically integrated apparel manufacturer, while recognising important synergies and consolidating corporate overhead."
