Innovo (INNO) said director Paul A. Robb will step down "due to unanticipated potential conflict of interest concerns."

The departure comes just a week after the Los Angeles-based jeans company said Robb, head of the

Kellwood

( KWD) lifestyle design group, would join the board. Robb was previously CEO of Duck Head Apparel.

"We regret that Paul is unable to remain on the Board of Directors," said CEO Marc Crossman. "We were looking forward to Paul's participation and guidance as a director. Nevertheless, we respect the circumstances which warrant Paul's resignation at this time."
