(PCM) George Zimmer has been the founder and face behind the popular men’s clothing chain Men’s Wearhouse since 1973 and is even the one responsible for coming up with the company’s catchy slogan “You’re going to like the way you look, I guarantee it”, but things do not appear to be going his way today.
It has just been reported that Zimmer has been fired from the company he founded and they released the following statement regarding Zimmer’s termination:
“The board expects to discuss with Mr. Zimmer the extent, if any, and terms of his ongoing relationship with the company.”
It seems as if the split is not at all amicable as Zimmer has fired back with the following statement of his own:
“Over the past several months I have expressed my concerns to the Board about the direction the company is currently heading.”“Instead of fostering the kind of dialogue in the Boardroom that has in part contributed to our success, the Board has inappropriately chosen to silence my concerns through termination as an executive officer.”
