Anderson Native Now CEO of Glen RavenOct 06, 2017 09:54AM ● By Emily Stevenson
Leib Oehmig, a native of Anderson who led the construction and management of Glen Raven's Anderson Plant, has ascended to the role of president and CEO of the multinational textile manufacturer. Oehmig replaces the family-owned company's longtime CEO, Allen Gant, who has retired but will continue as chairman.
Oehmig joined Glen Raven in 1989. His tenure at Anderson led to his promotion as president of Glen Raven Custom Fabrics, LLC, the makers of Sunbrella, a position he held until he was named president and COO of Glen Raven, Inc.
“Part of what makes Glen Raven such a special place is everyone, regardless of position or location, considers themselves part of one team – one Glen Raven,” Oehmig said. “It is an honor and a privilege to lead an organization driven by a culture that embraces transformational change.”
