CHARLOTTE, N.C.–Gary Grimsby has been promoted to senior vice president of sourcing, a newly created position at Perfect Fit Industries.
The move represents an expansion of Grimsby’s responsibilities as director of international sourcing, his previous position. He now manages all overseas finished-product and raw-materials procurement, and the company’s product-quality assurance group. He reports directly to Dan Hammer, who was appointed Perfect Fit’s chief executive officer in June.
Grimsby had been manager of Perfect Fit’s international sourcing for the past five years. He is a veteran of 25 years in the home-textiles industry as an executive with both manufacturers and retailers.
