Milliken’s Specialty Interiors, a business in the performance & protective textiles division, developing, designing, and manufacturing fabrics for home and office furniture, vertical panels, privacy curtains, window treatments, theatrical curtains, top-of-bed applications and more, has named Jennifer K. Harmon as its new vice president.

Harmon, who was previously vice president of design and interim, at True Textiles, Inc., will be responsible for leading Milliken’s growth in the market of specialty interiors textiles which includes both the commercial and residential market.

With over 25 years of leadership experience in the textile industry, she brings a combination of business management and textile design and development skills to the business. At True Textiles, she was instrumental in developing innovative platforms for product offerings to better reach the target audience to grow sales. Prior to True Textiles, she worked for a variety of market leaders, including Tietex International, Victor Studio, Chatham, and US Woven Labels.

Harmon earned an MBA from Montreat College and a BS in textile technology with a design concentration from North Carolina State University.

Jeff Price, president of Milliken’s performance & protective textiles division, said, “Our advances in the interiors textiles market and the increasing demand from our customers led us to look for an addition to our team who would fit in with our ethos of innovation and exceptional service, and it is very fortunate that we were able to find someone of Jennifer’s calibre to fulfil this position. I’m confident that she will play a key role in leading our team to provide and implement high quality solutions for our clients.” (GK)
