Jeff Ukrop has been named president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Ukrop’s Threads, US-based supplier, manufacturer and distributor of corporate apparel and uniforms. He replaces Bill Biedenharn, who retired on June 30 after serving in that role for the last couple of years. Biedenharn remains on the company’s board. Since inception, the business has been managed by non-family members.

John Carrico was president and CEO from its early days until Biedenharn took over a couple of years ago.

Bobby Ukrop, who serves as co-chair of the Ukrop’s Threads board with his older brother, said he was happy his son Jeff decided to join one of the family’s business enterprises.

“It is a family business but there is a level of independence from the family in terms of day-to-day operations. From that regard, [the CEO job] was appealing,” Jeff Ukrop was quoted as saying by US media outlets.
