Miami -- Empire Investment Holdings has appointed Charles Adams as the new ceo of its Polyester Fibers division, a holding company that manages five operating units.

He spent the longest stretch at Milliken, where he spent 26 years assigned to various senior leadership roles, including general manager of the commercial and residential interior fabrics business. Later, he moved to Los Angeles-based Morgan Fabrics as its president and coo.
