ST. LOUIS -- Charles T. Rumbley has been named president of the lingerie and activewear division of Kellwood Co.
He succeeds Leon M. McWhite, who has been appointed a corporate vice president. A company spokeswoman said McWhite -- a 30-year Kellwood veteran -- will be involved in new manufacturing and marketing projects. In his new capacity, he will report to William J. McKenna, president, chairman and chief executive officer.
Rumbley was for the past year vice president of operations at Gelmart Industries, a maker of private label foundations and daywear in College Point, N.Y.
Earlier, he held various executive posts at Vanity Fair Mills, and had been vice president of quality from 1992 to 1993.
At Kellwood, he will be based at lingerie and activewear headquarters in Summit, Miss., and will report to Enoch Harding Jr., president of the sportswear division.
@deciem is all about transparency and approachability. At this year’s WWD Digital Beauty Forum, the brand's co-CEO @nicolakilner said talking to customers directly about the ingredients in products and how they work is key. #wwdsummits #wwdbeauty
‘We didn't know how relevant our film would be when we were making it. When Steven [Rogers] wrote the script Trump wasn't president, class divide in America wasn't as evident as it is now, though it was present. The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.

Gemma Arterton is joined on the @bafta’s red carpet by Eileen Pullen and Gwen Davis, the two women who started the fight for the pay-gap. ‘They represent a normal person speaking out for what is right. Speak out, we will listen and anyone can speak out,’ said Arterton. #eebaftas #timesup #wwdeye (📸: David Fisher)
