Men’s Wearhouse fires founder and famed pitchman George Zimmer

Men's Wearhouse

By Elizabeth Lazarowitz

Men’s Wearhouse has handed founder and high-profile pitchman George Zimmer his hat.

The retailer said on Wednesday it had fired Zimmer as its executive chairman, but offered no reason for his abrupt departure.

Zimmer, who started the national chain in 1973, told CNBC that he had clashed with the board about the company’s direction and it had “chosen to silence my concerns through termination.”

Zimmer has been the very public face of Men’s Wearhouse for nearly three decades, starring in its TV ads and delivering the line “You’re going to like the way you look — I guarantee it” in his distinctive, gravelly voice.

Beginning with one store in Houston, Zimmer, 64, helped build the chain into one of North America’s largest men’s specialty clothing retailers, with 1,143 locations. He tapered his duties in 2011, when he stepped down as CEO.
