"Shelley is exactly the right leader for Boxercraft," said Patten Pettway, Jr., partner at River Associates Investments LLC, the private equity owner of Boxercraft. "Her extensive sales and marketing experience in the apparel industry, coupled with her vision for Boxercraft's role as the premiere service oriented company in the decorated spiritwear and licensed product markets will help shape Boxercraft as it continues its growth and expansion. Shelley has been a natural fit and driving force at Boxercraft, working to maintain its strong heritage and corporate culture."
In her new role, Foland will help to shape the overall day-to-day strategies for Boxercraft. "Boxercraft is one of America's great apparel companies, with a proud history of supplying exciting spiritwear apparel to youth, teams, schools, and colleges," she said. "It's a great honor to accept the position of CEO, and I look forward to continuing to build on its success."
