Hall exits Dan River
June 26, 2002,
Danville, VA — John Hall, Dan River's longtime senior vp of sales and marketing for department and specialty stores, has left the company. His last day was Friday, June 21.
Hall joined the major mill almost 12 years ago in August 1990 after working for the former WestPoint Pepperell. While with WPP, Hall was the vp of merchandising for department store bed products. As the point man for Dan River's better retailer business, Hall helped play a pivotal role in expanding the licensed Alexander Julian line and in helping the mill trade up its bed-in-a-bag offerings.
