Polymer Group Inc (PGI) announced that Robert J. Kocourek has been appointed chief financial officer of the company. Kocourek previously served as vice president and chief accounting officer.

Kocourek, 54, brings over 30 years of experience to this position. He joined PGI in May 2006 as vice president, corporate finance and treasurer. For three years prior to joining the company, Kocourek had consulted with PGI, assisting on its Sarbanes-Oxley implementation as well as on other financial accounting and reporting projects.

From January 2001 through September 2003, Kocourek was employed by Unifi Inc, a publicly traded textile manufacturer, and held the positions of director of planning and budgeting, treasurer, and vice president and chief financial officer.

Kocourek has over 10 years of public accounting experience with Coopers & Lybrand and Ernst & Young and has held senior positions in both public and privately held companies ranging from finance and accounting to chief executive officer. Kocourek replaces Willis "Billy" C. Moore, III, chief financial officer of the company since 2003, who has decided to leave the company to pursue other interests.

"I am pleased that Bob has accepted the position and look forward to his continued contributions to the success of the company," said Veronica "Ronee" Hagen, chief executive officer of PGI.

"Also, I would like to thank Billy Moore for the many contributions he made to PGI over the last four and a half years. Under his financial leadership, we have significantly improved our balance sheet and developed disciplined processes related to cash management and capital investments that will continue to benefit the company in the future," Hagen said.

"Bob's professional experience and leadership qualities will allow him to excel in his new role as CFO and I would like to wish everyone associated with PGI continued success in the future," said Moore.
