"Chris Basinger adds an important dimension to the Dacron brand team," said Roberto Fontanillas, global business director for Invista's Dactron fiberfill business. "His varied experience and deep knowledge of branding and retail market dynamics will prove invaluable as we expand consumer recognition of the Dacron brand and grow business with our mill and retailer partners through product innovation."
Basinger's background includes positions at Hanesbrands, Inc., Newell Rubbermaid and UnifiManufacturing.
In a blind consumer research study in 2012, two-thirds of U.S. home textiles decision makers said they are familiar with the Dacron brand, according to Invista.
