These appointments temporarily extend the company's board to 13 directors, which is expected to return to 10 directors effective at the end of its 2024 annual meeting of stockholders.
Board chairman Ronald L. Nelson welcomed Browne, Chand and Mehas to the HanesBrands board.
“They bring important relevant experience in retail, consumer brands and operations, and we look forward to gaining their insights as the Ccmpany continues to focus on driving improved performance and pursues key ongoing initiatives including the evaluation of alternatives for the global Champion business.
“The board is fully supportive of the company’s CEO, Steve Bratspies, as he and the broader team continue to execute on all of the company’s strategic plans, and we are steadfast in our commitment to delivering sustainable value creation for shareholders.
“We are confident the addition of these directors in combination with our current directors brings together diverse perspectives that will be beneficial as the company continues to take actions to drive accelerated growth and profitability.”
