HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tailored Brands, Inc. (the “Company”) today announced that Board members Bob Hull and Peter Sachse will continue as co-CEOs moving forward to provide continuity to the organization as it continues to progress its strategic plan.
Mr. Hull and Mr. Sachse were both appointed as Interim co-CEOs and joined the Company’s Board on March 16, 2021. Since that time, they have solidified a strong and united leadership team, refocused key departments and led the Company to outperform its revenue and profit targets for each quarter.
Mr. Hull and Mr. Sachse are seasoned leaders with experience leading large-scale organizational transformations and building high-performing teams. Both have served as active directors for a number of public and private companies as well. Mr. Hull has three decades of retail experience, including 17 years at Lowe’s Companies with the last 14 years as Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Sachse previously spent 34 years in various positions at Macy’s, Inc., including Chief Stores Officer, Chief Marketing Officer and Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of macys.com.
Board Chairman Paul Soldatos stated, “While we had launched a search for a CEO successor last year, we ultimately determined there was more to be gained by maintaining continuity in the leadership team and allowing this team to realize the full value of the careful planning and reorganization they completed over the past year. Bob and Peter are exceptionally qualified leaders with the deep expertise needed to continue advancing the Company’s progress. We are confident Tailored Brands has the right plan—and the right team—in place and look forward to seeing the results they will deliver.”
In conjunction with this decision, John Tighe will be promoted to President of Tailored Brands. In this new role, Mr. Tighe will continue to have end-to-end accountability for merchandising, marketing, e-commerce, rental, planning and allocation across the Men’s Wearhouse, Jos. A.

Before joining Tailored Brands, Mr. Tighe served as President of Peerless Clothing, the largest manufacturer of men’s and boys’ tailored clothing in North America. Prior to Peerless, he served as the Chief Merchant and EVP at JCPenney.
Mr. Hull and Mr. Sachse commented on Mr. Tighe’s promotion, stating, “We are extremely fortunate to have John on our team as we move into this next phase of our Company’s growth strategy. He brings a holistic view of the product lifecycle and how best to exceed customer expectations from procurement to cart—and everywhere in between. We are thrilled to see him take on additional scope and progress in his career.”
