The Mount Airy News", 30 Jun 2016: A change of leadership has occurred at Nester Hosiery in Mount Airy, but
.                                       one that keeps it in the family. Kelly Nester, who had been serving as president of the sock manufacturer located
.                                       on Carter Street, is now its chief executive officer.  Nester’s uncle, Marty Nester — the company founder and the
.                                       former CEO — will continue to chair Nester Hosiery’s board of directors in the wake of Kelly Nester’s promotion.
.                                     “We have been moving toward this change for some time and I am confident that under his (Kelly’s) leadership
.                                       Nester Hosiery will continue to grow and thrive,” Marty Nester said in a statement.  Nester Hosiery was founded
.                                       in 1993 in the Dobson area, and now employs more than 200 people in its Mount Airy facilities, where the com-
.                                       pany produces socks for many of the world’s leading outdoor, performance and lifestyle brands. Kelly Nester
,                                       joined the company in 1996 and became president in 2008.  After he came on board, Nester and his uncle began to
.                                       pursue private label production for outdoor retailers who wanted to have their own brand of socks, according to
.                                       previous reports.  Nester Hosiery has gone on to build a reputation as a family-owned, environmentally respon-
.                                       sible company that has established a niche as a designer and manufacturer of innovative socks for mountaineers,
.                                       firefighters, military personnel, athletes and others. This reflects a decision years before by Marty Nester to focus
.                                       on socks for outdoor markets, which included investing in special equipment to knit wool. One key development in
.                                       that regard occurred in 2013 with Nester Hosiery’s launching of its Farm to Feet division. That name highlights the
.                                       company’s production of 100-percent American-made socks from a supply chain located completely within the
.                                       United States.  The Farm to Feet segment produces a full range of socks for both rugged pursuits and normal use,
.                                       made with merino wool from the Rocky Mountains and other materials from domestic sources. The brand is sold
.                                       by outdoor retailers across the country.  Nester Hosiery thus has remained a thriving enterprise amid a culture of
.                                       change in the local apparel industry which has led to other companies outsourcing production to foreign locations
.                                       or closing altogether.  “Marty has created a strong foundation for us by instilling a company culture committed to
.                                       tireless product innovation and development of the best manufacturing processes,” Kelly Nester said in a state-
,                                       ment concerning his new leadership role. “I am fortunate and excited to carry this forward.”
