In June of 2013, George Zimmer, CEO and founder of men's clothing retailer chain, Men's Wearhouse, was fired from his own company.
Zimmer was let go by the Board of Directors, with this statement: "He advocated for significant changes that would enable him to regain control, but ultimately he was unable to convince any of the Board members or senior executives that his positions were in the best interests of employees, shareholders or the company's future."
Zimmer responded: "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 by terminating me as an executive officer."
Zimmer founded the company in 1973 in Houston, Texas. In 1986 he began appearing in commercials for the company with the now-famous catch phrase "You're going to like the way you look. I guarantee it."
