Gildan Activewear Inc., a leading supplier of quality branded basic family apparel, has appointed Rhodri J Harries as executive vice-president, chief financial, and administrative officer.

Harries has been the chief financial officer of Rio Tinto Alcan since 2014, where previously he held the position of chief commercial officer from 2009 to 2013. He joined Alcan in Montreal in 2004 as the vice president and corporate treasurer and remained with the company following its acquisition by Rio Tinto in 2007, according to a company press release.

Prior to joining Alcan, Harries spent 15 years in North America, Asia, and Europe with General Motors, where he held successive positions of increasing responsibility in corporate finance, treasury and business development.

Harries succeeds Laurence G. Sellyn, who will continue with Gildan as required in order to support Harries’ integration into the Company and ensure an orderly transfer of responsibilities.

Glenn J. Chamandy, president and chief executive officer said, “We are extremely pleased that Rhodri is joining Gildan. With his strong experience in finance, commercial and operations leadership roles in major global corporations, Rhodri will be an important addition to our executive team as we continue to implement the next stage of our growth strategies.”

Gildan is a leading supplier of quality branded basic family apparel, including T-shirts, fleece, sport shirts, underwear, socks, hosiery, and shapewear. The Company sells its products under a diversified portfolio of company-owned brands, including the Gildan and Gold Toe brands and brand extensions, as well as the Anvil, Comfort Colors, Secret, Silks, and Therapy Plus brands.
