The Board of Directors of International Legwear Group (ILG) has announced the selection of Kathy Willis to serve as Chief Executive Officer effective immediately.

Willis has served as President and Chief Operating Officer of ILG since June 2008. She has over 23 years of industry experience including 15 years as CFO with Neuville Industries/ILG. She graduated from Lenoir Rhyne College with a BS in Finance.

Board member Shannon Kennedy stated, "We are confident that in Kathy, we have the leader we need to complete the transformation of ILG and bring innovation to a category in need of fresh thinking. Kathy has assembled a first class team with deep knowledge of customers, consumer dynamics, and the industry. We are very pleased to be able to promote Kathy to the top leadership position within ILG."

According to Willis, "Over the last six months we have made some tough decisions. We've examined and improved our systems and processes. We already had some of the best and brightest in the industry, but where needed we have added top notch talent. All of these changes were required to assure that we are able to exceed the expectations of our customers. For too long, our industry hasn't kept pace with the level of innovation in other consumer categories. We intend to change that."

Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains in Hildebran, NC, International Legwear Group markets socks and other legwear products under the much loved Peds brand. ILG also markets socks and legwear under other well known brand such as Dickies, Starter, and DanskinNow brands as well as strategic private labels.
