Dreamgirl’s ceo Christopher Scharff has left the company after 14 years of dedicated service, as he moves on to pursue other ventures.
Christopher bought Dreamgirl International (also known as DG Brands) in 2003 and built the company into the world-respected fast-growing costume and lingerie manufacturer it is today. In that time, DG Brands expanded over 2,000 retailer accounts worldwide and accrued more than $30million in sales, annually.
Christopher sold the company 18 months ago. He was halfway through a three-year handover period, but has now decided to part ways with the parent company.
“We are saddened to see the departure of Christopher as he has revolutionised the company under his leadership and dedication to the company for the past 14 years, but we know he will go on to do great things,” said Alma Canjura, evp and coo of DG Brands. “Although this will be a large change for the organisation, Dreamgirl has many exciting moments ahead with the launch of our newest lingerie and costume collections in the coming months.”
Chairman Frank Chen has announced that Barry Revzen has been appointed as the new ceo of DG Brands.
“I am leaving the organisation in the hands of a very strong leadership team and am extremely optimistic about DG Brands’ future prospects,” said Christopher in an official statement.
“As I look to the future, I am dedicated to making it positive and productive, although I will keenly miss the people and the stellar creativity and high-quality work we produced at Dreamgirl.”
