Danville, VA — Dan River announced this afternoon that Tom Muscalino, president of the home fashions division, will become the company’s president and coo, effective tomorrow.
Current president and coo Richard Williams will move to the position of vice chairman and will retire effective Dec. 26.
Muscalino started his career with Cannon Mills and moved to WestPoint Pepperell, where he eventually became president of the consumer products division. He joined Dan River in 1993 as president of the home fashions division.
Hammer worked for Fieldcrest Cannon and Springs Industries early in his career before moving to the Bibb Co. in 1993, where he rose to president of consumer products. Following Dan River’s acquisition of Bibb, Hammer moved to his current position.
The mill said it will also adopt a more streamlined organizational structure. All finance and accounting functions will be consolidated under Barry Shea, evp and cfo.
