Ty Haney is back at the Austin-based company she founded, Outdoor Voices.

Ty Haney, the founder and former CEO of Austin-based athleisure company Outdoor Voices, told Vogue that she is returning to the company as an active member of the board after resigning in February.


The company is also bringing in Ashley Merrill, CEO of the sleepwear company Lunya, as the new chair of the board.

"I am thrilled to be joining Team OV and look forward to bringing my experiences at Lunya to help build a healthy, sustainable business," Merrill said in an Outdoor Voices press release.

The press release made no mention of Haney's return, but Merrill said in an interview that she felt a kinship with Haney as they have both been top woman executives.

Merrill is replacing chairman Mickey Drexler, former CEO of J.Crew and GAP. Reports of tensions between Drexler and Taney circulated when Taney stepped down earlier this year.

Interim CEO Cliff Moskowitz also left his position. The company is seeking a replacement.
