CHANGES ON THE VINCE BOARD: Jill Granoff, chief executive officer of Vince Holding Corp., has been named chairman of the board. She succeeds Christopher T. Metz, who has resigned. In addition, Jason Neimark resigned from the board. Neither resignation involved a disagreement with the company or any matter relating to the company’s operations, policies or practices, according to an 8-K filed Monday.

T. Scott King, managing director of Sun Capital Partners, and Jonathan H. Borell, principal of Sun Capital Partners, were named to the board, filling the vacancies created by the resignations of Metz and Neimark.

The company also expanded the size of the board to nine members and appointed Marc Leder, co-ceo of Sun Capital Partners, to the board. Mark Brody, managing director and group chief financial officer of Sun Capital, was named lead independent director. As reported, Eugenia Ulasewicz joined the board earlier this month.
