Leigh Fibers Mourns Chairman Philip Lehner

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — January 9, 2013 — Philip Lehner, longtime chairman and CEO of Leigh Fibers, passed away Jan. 5 at his home in Hingham, Mass.  He was 89.

During his 65 years with Leigh Fibers, Lehner helped the company become the largest textile and fiber reprocessing company in the United States.  His other business interests — notably coffee, sugar cane and vegetable oil companies in Latin America — also pioneered sustainable production methods.

Lehner was a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Harvard College and served in the U.S. Naval Intelligence Service during World War II.
