True Religion Apparel, Inc. (Nasdaq:TRLG) today said that Kymberly Gold Lubell, vice president, will be leaving the company to pursue personal interests. Kym joined the company in January 2004 and worked closely in product design with company founder and husband Jeffrey Lubell, who is True Religion’s chairman of the board and chief executive officer.
