Le Château Inc. says its founder and his wife have left the insolvent company as it prepares to close its doors.

Herschel Segal and his wife, Jane Silverstone Segal, resigned as directors effective Wednesday.

Silverstone Segal had ceased to be board chairwoman and chief executive effective Oct. 26, shortly after it obtained creditor protection.

The Montreal-based company thanked them for their “contributions, efforts, service and dedication” over the years.

Le Château is liquidating as it prepares to close after about 60 years of operation.
