NEW YORK — Hyosung Corp. has named former Invista executive Gregory Vas Nunes as president of its Creora spandex business in Europe and the Americas.
Vas Nunes, 46, last served as vice president of Invista’s Asia-Pacific apparel business.
Hyosung will move its spandex division’s marketing function from Seoul, South Korea, to New York, where Vas Nunes will be based. He began his new position last month and reports to Hyosung’s global president, H.T. Cho.
“We have met our first phase goals for business and now must take the next step toward globalization,” Cho said in a statement.
The company, which has the capacity to produce more than 50,000 tons of spandex, maintains sales and marketing offices in 15 countries.
“We must go beyond our current technical and operations expertise and use more sophisticated sales and market skills to deliver against our customers’ unmet needs,” Cho said. “We will build or acquire manufacturing assets in all regions of the world in the coming years, with initial focus on Europe.”

In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
