US: Olah names new textile division chief
Denim-focused fabric and apparel company Olah Inc has named Michael Morrell as the new head of its textile division - replacing Andrew Olah who is to focus on other parts of the business.
Morrell is currently president of Olah, and is an expert textiles, denim and garment dyer who has worked at Jones Apparel Group, Swift Denim, and Roxboro Dye Co.
"We've been planning this shift for some time and I am happy for the opportunity to evolve our textile sales division and continue to help our mill partners develop the best textiles possible," Morrell said.
The company supplies US firms with denim, corduroy and piece-dyed fabrics.
Andrew Olah, meanwhile, will continue to act as chief executive officer. However, he will devote his attention on the Kingpins Show, which he founded in 2004, and Olah Inc's consulting division, which is working with Bayer CropScience on several cottonseed brands and its e3 sustainable cotton programme.
