Delta Apparel Inc announced the appointment of Robert E. (Bob) Staton to its Board of Directors. Mr. Staton brings more than 30 years of outstanding business leadership to the Company.

In 2002, after 17 years of service, Mr. Staton retired as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer from Colonial Life, a publicly traded company whose primary business is the sales and service of voluntary benefits programs. During his tenure at Colonial he was instrumental in Colonial's merger with UNUM Corporation and UNUM's merger with Provident Life.

Mr. Staton served as Chairman of the Board of Carolina National Bank from its inception in 2002 until the bank's acquisition by First National of the South in 2008. He currently serves on the board of First National of the South.

In addition since his retirement, Mr. Staton has served as Interim Vice President for Development at the University of South Carolina and President and CEO of the United Way of South Carolina. He is currently Executive Vice President for External Relations at Presbyterian College in Newberry, South Carolina. He was previously a board member of the R. L. Bryan Company and New South Industries as well as the Board of Trustees and Executive Committee of Presbyterian College.

From 1971 to 1985, prior to joining Colonial Life, Mr. Staton was engaged in the private practice of law in Columbia, South Carolina. Mr. Staton holds a degree in Economics from Presbyterian College and a J. D. degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law.

In addition to Mr. Staton's business experience, he has served on numerous civic and educational boards, committees and alliances. During his career, Mr. Staton has been recognized for his contributions to business and the community.

He has been named South Carolina Business Leader of the Year by the State Chamber of Commerce, Humanitarian of the Year by the United Way of the Midlands, and Ambassador of the Year by the Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce. He was awarded the Order of the Palmetto, the highest statewide civilian honor presented in the state of South Carolina.

“We are looking forward to having Bob's leadership and business experience on our Board of Directors,” commented Robert W. Humphreys, President and Chief Executive Officer of Delta Apparel, Inc. “His deep experience in risk management and governance will provide further diversity of expertise and experience to our Board. We are pleased to welcome Bob, and are confident he will make a significant contribution.”
