Julio Wong, Chief People Officer of American Leather, said:Bottom of Form “We are very thankful for everything Bruce has done for American Leather Holdings. He was instrumental in our company’s growth, especially leading the acquisitions of Lee, Brookline and BenchMade Modern, and we appreciate all of the years he gave to us. Bruce will be missed very much by our entire team and by our customer partners. We wish him the absolute best.”
