Cotton Incorporated announced the promotion of Mike Tyndall to Vice President, Product Development and Implementation, as part of a realignment of the company’s textile research efforts. Tyndall, who will report directly to Cotton Incorporated President and CEO J. Berrye Worsham, will supervise all aspects of technical textile research for the company.
In his new role, Tyndall will oversee activities in the Fiber Processing, Product Development, Dyeing Research, and Finishing Research Departments. To foster greater synchronicity between research and implementation, the company’s Technology Management and Technology Implementation departments will also report to Tyndall.
