ATLANTA — Doug Kelly has left Russell Corp., a mere 17 months after he joined the company as president of Russell Athletic. His ouster on Friday prompted Fruit of the Loom, Russell’s parent, to realign the senior management structure at the company. Russell will not name a new president.
Gary Barfield was named executive vice-president, assuming senior management responsibility for the Russell Athletic and Spalding brands. Barfield, who was tapped to lead the organization, was vice-president of team sports for Russell Athletic and Spalding before his promotion. He reports to John Holland, president and CEO of Fruit of the Loom and Russell.
