American Textile Company (ATC), a leading provider of innovative sleep solutions, has appointed Keith Brown as senior vice president of operations.

Brown brings significant leadership and technical experience having led operations at Springs Global US, where he orchestrated productivity improvements and established key global alliances. He also held senior product development and merchandising roles, providing breadth to his experience. Prior to Springs, Brown held leadership roles at Pillowtex and West Point Stevens.

Manufacturing operations at ATC are undergoing a rapid transformation to support its aggressive growth plans. Expansion of its Asian operation offers significant capability to its ongoing domestic and South American operations.

"Keith's leadership in large global organizations is a tremendous asset as we look to the future," commented Lance Ruttenberg, President and COO of American Textile Company. "Our continued growth hinges on our ability to deliver solutions of significant value across a range of categories to customers and consumers, requiring expert coordination across our expanding global footprint."

Innovation also plays a continuing critical role in the Company's future. "Keith's background enables us to move more quickly than ever across operations, product development, and merchandising," added Ruttenberg. "The recent success of our AllerEase Naturals line is a great example of our growing capability. Keith's experience, combined with that of our entire team, create a powerful force that will drive top and bottom line growth for our customers. His arrival marks an exciting new chapter in our story."
