Aeropostale President to Retire in March

Aeropostale, Inc. president Michael Cunningham will retire on March 29, 2013, the company reports.

Cunningham joined Aeropostale in August 2000 when the company had 200 stores in 27 states. Today, the company operates nearly 1,000 Aeropostale stores in the U.S. and Canada and 100 P.S. from Aeropostale locations in the U.S.; has a licensing presence in the Middle East, Asia and Europe; and operates a robust e-commerce platform that includes the recent acquisition of GoJane.com.

Thomas P. Johnson, CEO of Aeropostale, Inc., says, "Over the past 12 years, Michael has been an incredible partner and friend, and a highly respected leader within our organization. He truly embodies the core values that make Aeropostale such a special organization. Michael has been a key contributor to the evolution of our business as a multi-brand and multi-national specialty retailer. In particular, he has been instrumental in building Aeropostale's best-in-class financial and business operations. While we will miss our daily interactions with Michael, we are pleased that he will remain on the board of directors and we look forward to his continued, invaluable input into our business."

Cunningham adds, "For more than a decade, it has been both gratifying and rewarding to be a part of the team that helped Aeropostale grow into one of the most highly recognized and productive teen apparel retailers. Most importantly, I am proud to be associated with such a talented group of executives and employees, who make the Aeropostale culture so unique. I am confident that the transition of my responsibilities will be seamless with the current leadership team, and I look forward to watching the company's future success."

Johnson will assume responsibilities over information technology; Marc D. Miller, executive vice president and CFO, will assume responsibilities over planning and allocation and Mary Jo Pile, executive vice president, customer engagement will assume responsibilities over construction, logistics and real estate.
