HanesBrands Appoints Elizabeth Burger as Chief Human Resources Officer
HanesBrands, Winston-Salem, N.C., announced the appointment of Elizabeth L. Burger to the position of chief human resources officer.
Burger, 42, joins HanesBrands from Monsanto Company, where she was vice president of human resources for global business operations. She has nearly 20 years of human resources experience, including acquisition integration, business strategy development, organizational design, international operations, and compensation, diversity and employee engagement program design.
Burger will have responsibility for all HanesBrands human resources functions globally and will report to chairman and chief executive officer Richard A. Noll. Burger succeeds Kevin W.

She will be integral to the execution of our business strategies, which requires a business savvy human resources function.
