Hanesbrands Inc announced that Ronald L. Nelson, chairman and chief executive officer of Avis Budget Group Inc, has been elected to the company's board of directors, effective July 21, 2008.

Nelson, 55, will serve for a term scheduled to end at the 2009 annual meeting of stockholders and will serve on the board's audit committee. With Nelson's election, the Hanesbrands board will have 10 members.

Since 2006, Nelson has led Avis Budget Group Inc, one of the world's largest general-use car rental companies and operator of the Avis and Budget brands in North America, Latin America, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand.

Prior to his current position, he held leadership roles with Avis Budget's predecessor, Cendant Corporation, including president, chief financial officer and director with responsibility for strategic and financial planning, treasury, financial reporting and accounting, and other functions.

"We look forward to Ron, with his wealth of experience, joining the Hanesbrands board," said Hanesbrands Chairman Lee A. Chaden.

"Ron's leadership of a global company with large consumer brands and his strategic planning, finance and merger and acquisition experience will be great assets to our company."

In addition to Avis Budget and Cendant, Nelson has held senior management positions with DreamWorks SKG and Paramount Communications Inc.

He previously served as a director of Charter Communications Inc, Paramount Communications, and Advanced Tissue Sciences Inc.

He earned his MBA at the University of California at Los Angeles and earned his bachelor's degree at the University of California at Berkeley.
