Cotton Incorporated President and Chief Executive Officer J. Berrye Worsham said this of Bearden's appointment, “All of us at Cotton Incorporated are delighted to have Ricky on board. His keen understanding of the cotton industry will be an asset during his term as Cotton Incorporated Board Chairman.”
