Milliken & Company Names Allen CEO

G. Ashley Allen, Ph.D., president and chief operating officer, Milliken & Company, has been named CEO of the Spartanburg-based business. Allen succeeds CEO Roger Milliken, who continues as chairman of the board.

“In an era when so many companies go outside to pick a new CEO, it gives Milliken’s directors and me strong confidence that our long-term policy of careful recruiting, continuing education in Milliken University and cross promotion is working,” Milliken said.

Allen earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Washington & Lee University, Lexington, Va.; and a doctorate in organic chemistry from Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y., where he also was a postdoctoral fellow. He is a member of the American Chemical Society, Management Executives’ Society, Executive Committee of the Society of Chemical Industry, Spartanburg Regional Healthcare Foundation Board of Trustees, South Carolina Council on Competitiveness, Charles Lea Foundation Board of Directors and Episcopal Church of the Advent.
