“HanesBrands has a strong foundation and is executing an aggressive strategic plan,” Dastugue added. “I look forward to joining the new leadership team, driving the growth agenda and helping the company reach its Full Potential.”

HanesBrands has not had a permanent CFO since 2019, when finance chief Barry Hytinen departed the company. He was in the role for two years.
