Unifi, Inc., a global textile solutions provider and a leading innovator in manufacturing synthetic and recycled performance fibres, has announced the election of Albert (Al) P. Carey to the Board of Directors. Unifi collaborates with many of the world’s most influential brands in the sports apparel, fashion, home, automotive, and other industries.

Carey currently serves as CEO of PepsiCo North America, a role he has held since March 2016. As a 36-year PepsiCo veteran, he has extensive experience leading multiple lines of consumer brands across snacks and beverages at PepsiCo, including as CEO of Frito-Lay North America.

Carey currently serves on the board of directors of The Home Depot, Inc. and The Food Marketing Institute.

Kevin Hall, chairman and CEO of Unifi said, “We are excited to have someone with Al’s background join our Board of Directors. As we expand our product offerings beyond textile fibres and into numerous sustainable solutions, Al’s experience will be paramount. His addition to our board comes at an excellent time, as we focus on growing REPREVE and our innovative product portfolio across multiple markets.”

Carey said, “Unifi’s unique market position, product portfolio and strategic initiatives are compelling. I am looking forward to being involved in the growth opportunities of REPREVE, a critical sustainability story with over 10 billion plastic bottles being saved from landfills and transformed into high-quality consumer products.” (GK)
