Tefron, a leading producer of seamless intimate apparel and engineered-for-performance (EFPTM) active wear, announced the appointment of Arnon Tiberg as the new Chairman of the Board of Directors.

His long industry experience and direct knowledge of the major customer base will help to strengthen Tefron's turnaround program and especially in improving our service to customers. I have great respect for Arnon, having seen his constructive influence on the Board of Directors at NILIT, where I managed the fiber division, and I look forward to working with Arnon now even more closely to take Tefron forward in its restructuring program."
