Weight Watchers Announces Election of Kim Roy to Board of Directors
Date:3/14/2008

NEW YORK, March 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Weight Watchers International, Inc. (NYSE: WTW) today announced that its Board of Directors yesterday unanimously elected Kim Roy as a member of its Board of Directors effective as of March 30, 2008, the beginning of the Company's second fiscal quarter of 2008. Ms. Roy will also serve on the Board's Audit Committee.

Ms. Roy, 49, has served since 2003 as the President of Lauren Womenswear of the Polo Ralph Lauren Corporation, a worldwide leader in the design, marketing and distribution of premium lifestyle products in four categories: apparel, home, accessories and fragrances for more than 40 years. Prior to joining the Polo Ralph Lauren Corporation, Ms. Roy was the President of Ann Taylor Stores, Inc. and, prior to that, held various senior retail and merchandising positions at Liz Claiborne, Inc., the latest being Group President. Ms. Roy holds a bachelor of science degree from Skidmore College.

"I am very pleased and excited to welcome Kim Roy to our Board of Directors," said Raymond Debbane, the Company's Chairman of the Board. "Kim brings an impressive depth of retail and managerial experience and an extensive knowledge of the female consumer, which the Company will benefit from as it continues to strengthen its business and capitalize on its opportunities."

Ms. Roy's election was part of the Company's succession process to replace Sam K. Reed, who previously notified the Company in March 2007 of his desire to resign from the Board at such time as a suitable successor director was duly elected and qualified. Mr. Reed yesterday resigned from the Company's Board effective as of March 29, 2008, the end of the first fiscal quarter of 2008. Ms. Roy will stand for re-election to the Board at the Company's annual shareholders meeting on May 6, 2008 for a term coinciding with Mr. Reed's remaining Class III term (i.e., until the 2010 annual meeting of shareholders).
