Halsey Cook, new president and CEO of Milliken.

Milliken & Company’s board of directors announced the appointment of Halsey M. Cook Jr. as president and CEO effective September 1, 2018 while J. Harold Chandler returned to his role as chair of the board of directors.

Cook’s 30-year career leading a wide range of large, diversified global businesses with significant manufacturing and distribution networks has prepared him to lead family-owned Milliken. His leadership roles in sales, marketing and product development have included international- and U.S.-based assignments across a variety of companies such as United Technologies and Legrand North America.

Most recently, Cook was the president and CEO for Sonepar USA, a family-owned global distributor of electrical products and related solutions. These experiences provided opportunities for Cook to drive growth through organic innovation programs and strategic acquisitions. He has a B.A. in Economics and English from the University of the South and an MBA from the University of Virginia.

“The board of directors is confident that Halsey is the right leader for Milliken’s next era,” said current chair, president and CEO, Harold Chandler. “His experience in growing diversified, global businesses and his leadership style are an excellent fit for Milliken’s values, culture and commitment to the community.

On joining the Milliken team, Cook commented, “I am honored and excited to have been selected to lead Milliken. It is an esteemed company with talented associates and an opportunity-rich future. I am looking forward to meeting the team and listening to their ideas and aspirations for the next chapter of Milliken & Company.”
