Hanes grows its sales department with two industry veterans.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.-Hanes grows its sales department with two industry veterans. The company names Tim Gibson as director of business development and Jim Dunne as director of distributor sales.

Gibson comes to Hanes with 30 years in the apparel and promotional marketing industry, including a recent stint at BELLA + CANVAS. In his new role, Gibson develops and implements strategic initiatives across the field and inside sales for HanesBrands.

“Tim is a strong sales leader who brings a dynamic energy with a proven record of success in fashion apparel sales,” says Rachel Newman, vice president/general manager of Hanes Activewear. “With the addition of Alternative and ComfortWash within the last two years, along with continued growth with Hanes and meteoric rise of Champion, we are well positioned as this channel continues to elevate.”

“It’s a great honor to join the HanesBrands team,” adds Gibson. “No other supplier in this industry has such a complete portfolio of brands. From basics to athletic to fashion, I can now walk into any customer, knowing I have a solution.”

Dunne comes to the company from Heritage Sportswear. He holds more than 20 years of sales experience.

“This is a wonderful opportunity, and I could not be more pleased to join this team,” says Dunne. “HanesBrands is an iconic American company. The care and quality that Hanes puts into its products and the way it does business is second to none.”

In his position, Dunne says he aims to “bridge the relationship of how wholesalers work and how they connect with their customers.”

“Jim has an exceptional understanding of the market,” states Newman. “His relationships and sales acumen are rooted in his dedicated approach to customer service. With our expanded portfolio, we are well positioned for growth, and Jim’s strategic insights and relationships will be a tremendous asset.”
