Unifi, Inc., one of the world’s leading innovators in synthetic and recycled yarns, has announced the election of Kevin D. Hall as chairman of the Board of Directors. Hall will also continue to serve as chief executive officer, a position he has held since May 2017. In addition, Archibald Cox, Jr. was elected as lead independent director.

Hall has more than 30 years of strategic marketing and brand development experience, along with leadership and managerial experience in the apparel industry. During his tenure as chief executive officer, Hall has led the Unifi team toward growth in domestic and international sales, with a strong focus on expanding the REPREVE platform, along with other premium value-added products.

Kevin Hall said, “I am honoured by and grateful for the confidence of the Board of Directors. The Board has been integral to the changes made to our executive leadership team in recent months. Jim Mead’s vision and leadership during this process as non-executive chairman was invaluable. The recent additions of significant new talent have strengthened our competitive position, and we believe we are on track to become the global textile industry leader in recycling and an innovation partner of choice.”

Archibald Cox, Jr. has served Unifi as an independent director since 2008. He is the chairman of Sextant Group, Inc., a financial advisory and private equity firm, and former chairman of Barclays Americas, a position he held from May 2008 to June 2011. (GK)
