Management Out At Broder
Broder Bros. Co. (asi/42090),
the number-one supplier of the Counselor
Top 40, announced last week
that its top two officers are leaving
the company. Vince Tyra, CEO, has
resigned to spend more time with
his family in Louisville, KY. And
Mark Barrocas, president, will
be joining number-one Counselor
Top 40 distributor WearGuard-Crest
(asi/356061) as the company’s
president. Broder also announced
that Thomas Myers, a director of
the company, will be the Interim
CEO while a search is conducted
to replace both Tyra and Barrocas.
says the timing of the two resignations
is simply coincidental. “I’ve had
four great years with the company, but
a good opportunity presented itself,” he
says. “And Vince has been commuting
from Louisville to Pennsylvania for
the past six years. There were no force-outs
here. Broder is in good shape and,
in fact, October was the biggest month
in the company’s history.” Tyra
will remain with Broder through the
end of 2005, and Barrocas will stay
on through November 18.
TSF Sportswear (asi/90522),
based in Ft. Lauderdale,
FL, is without power and
phones. Robert Randall,
the company's sales manager,
wants to assure distributors
that the building and product
lines are intact and the
company will notify distributors
when its power and phone
lines are back up – estimated
to be no later than November
