Katie Greenyer, creative talent and network director at Pentland Brands, has been chosen as the world president of the Textile Institute. Greenyer started her career as a freelance designer working with the likes of Red or Dead, Christian Lacroix, Vivienne Westwood, Benny Ong, Next, Jigsaw, Paul Costello, Dr Martins, French Connection and Ben Sherman.

She received a host of nominations for the position.

Stephanie Dick, CEO of the Textile Institute says: “While Katie’s not the first world president we’ve had from Pentland Brands (Stephen Rubin, chairman, Pentland Group, held the position from 2008-09), she’s certainly different from any president we’ve had before. Her vitality and passion for our industry is exactly what we need, and I have no doubt Katie will be a huge success in helping us to recruit talent into the industry, champion our corporate membership, accreditations and recognise and reward outstanding work in textiles.”

Greenyer says: “The Textile Institute not only offers a solid foundation of industry knowledge and techniques, which is crucial for any budding designer, it provides the opportunity to really push the boundaries of innovation. My role as world president of the Textile Institute is to help universities and the wider industry to see the importance of accreditation and to make sure we’re doing the right things - and to have a lot of fun while doing it!”

The Textile Institute was set up in 1910 to promote professionalism in all areas associated with the textile industries and has members from across art, design, economics, education, retail, engineering, fashion, marketing, production, science and sustainability.

Greenyer, who joined Pentland Brands over 20 years ago, when the group acquired Red or Dead, has a unique role as its creative talent and network director. She is the creative lead for their working environments, heads up the central design team and the design pool talent and is a company brand ambassador, leading relationships and research projects with universities.
