Edwards, who spent about two years as a Borders executive, was previously credited with leading the expansion of Portland-based Lucy Activewear from "a dotcom survivor into a thriving brick-and-mortar chain with locations around the country," the Portland Business Journal reported.
“I am excited to join Wicked Quick and help drive the brand to the next level," Edwards said in a statement.
Wicked Quick CEO and founder Tarran Pitschka said in a statement that Edwards "has a tremendous reputation and understanding of the apparel market and brands and we know he can help take us to a $50 million company and beyond.”
