US yarn manufacturer Unifi has appointed former company executive Edmund Ingle as CEO.

Ingle, who previously spent 30 years with Unifi in progressively senior roles from 1986 to 2018, will take up the role from 1 July. He joins from Indorama Ventures.

Thomas Caudle Jr, president and COO of Unifi is to retire on 27 June after 40 years with the company. He will continue to be president and COO through his retirement date.

“Eddie brings over 30 years of experience with Unifi, having held several key leadership positions during that time. The board viewed his blend of industry expertise, knowledge of Unifi, broad operational skills, and proven leadership to comprise the ideal candidate to execute the company’s strategic objectives,” says Albert Carey, executive chairman of Unifi.

“I’m pleased that Tom will still be with us for another year to help us conclude some very important strategic projects and to assist with the management transition. Tom’s knowledge and expertise of our business and the industry have been invaluable, and he’s been an integral part of Unifi’s success over the years.”

Ingle currently serves as CEO for Indorama’s Recycling Group. Prior to that, he was Indorama’s chairperson and CEO for its Wellman International division. He began his career at Unifi’s operations in Letterkenny, Ireland, in 1986 and moved to Winston-Salem in 1991 to work for Unifi in the United States, and over the years has held numerous progressive leadership positions, including vice president of supply chain and global corporate sustainability officer.
