News broke back in June that American Apparel founder and CEO Dov Charney was on his way out. His history of misconduct and sexual harassment charges has seriously tainted the brand. He was officially terminated as of yesterday, and his new successor was announced: Paula Schneider. “This company needs a permanent CEO who can bring stability and strong leadership in this time of transition, and we believe Ms. Schneider fits the bill perfectly,” said David Danziger, Co-Chairman of the Board.

Schneider doesn’t fully take over until January 5th, but it looks like the label is already getting back on track. Have you met Brendan? Why didn’t HE get the job? Someone explain.
