Champion Thread Company, a leading global supplier of industrial sewing threads, engineered yarns, and other textile and sewn products supplies, has announced the promotion of Matt Poovey as the new president of the company. In the new role, he will extend his current sales and operations duties to include responsibility for all day-to-day activities.

Matt Poovey assumes the position from his father and company founder, Bob Poovey, who will continue to actively serve as chief executive officer.

Matt holds a BS degree in textile management from North Carolina State University. He is an active member of the Southern Textile Association and the SEAMS Association, the National Association for the Sewn Products Industry. He currently serves as a director and vice president of SEAMS.

Poovey said, “I am honoured to serve as the president at a time of such opportunity and growth for Champion Thread. The resurgence of soft goods manufacturing in the United States and across the Americas has fuelled our strong growth in recent years. This has empowered us to accelerate innovation of existing products, expand into new products, and increase market share. I look forward to continuing to work closely with my father and the rest of the Champion Thread team to drive continued growth into the foreseeable future.” (GK)
