Garmatex Technologies' disruptive Fiberithm(TM) technology platform entices 
apparel industry trailblazer to join team 
VANCOUVER, Sept. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Garmatex Technologies, Inc., an industry 
disrupting developer and supplier of scientifically-engineered performance 
fabrics and apparel technologies, announces the appointment of Douglas 
Sheridan as President and Chief Operating Officer of its Finished Goods 
Division and Business Director, Garmatex International. 
In joining Garmatex, Mr. Sheridan builds on an illustrious 30-year+ career as 
a designer and senior business executive working with retail brands in fabric 
and apparel manufacturing, supply chain management, sales, licensing, 
distribution and executive placement. During his career he has held numerous 
leadership roles at industry bellwethers such as: 


    --  Adidas AG (HK), where he was VP of R&D and Corporate Marketing
        for Adidas in Asia and was responsible for establishing Adidas
        development offices around the Asian region; and a key member
        of the early 90's Brand turn around team;
    --  Reebok/Avia (Taiwan) where he served as Country Manager;
    --  Etonic-Tretorn, PUMA (Sweden) where he was VP of Product Design
        and Supply Chain; and
    --  Bata Footwear (South Africa, Italy, Canada) where he served as
        Designer and Brand Manager.

Most recently, Mr. Sheridan was a Principal of BKMS HK, a Retail and Footwear 
manufacturing group in China for major brands including Geox, Boss, Skechers, 
Etnies, Patrick, Levis, Anta, Li Ning, and Lee Cooper, and was the Asian 
Region Master Licensee for Diadora (Italy) with 200+ stores in China and 75 
stores in the Asian region.

"I am delighted to join Garmatex", said Sheridan. "I have worked all over the 
world with many of the leading fabric and apparel companies, designers, and 
fabric engineers but I have never seen a more promising and innovative fabric 
technology platform than that of Garmatex's. It is truly disruptive and offers 
endless opportunities to build dominant positions in the majority of the major 
textile segments. This starts, for me, with the performance apparel segment, 
where I believe Garmatex has already developed the best-engineered array of 
fabrics currently available in the world, which can transform the capabilities 
of the leading retail brands and lift the entire industry to a new level of 
accomplishment."

Martin Doane, Chief Executive Officer of Garmatex, commented on Mr. Sheridan's 
appointment: "For many months we have been searching for that one industry 
veteran executive who combined international leadership experience with a 
comprehensive background in all key aspects of the fabric and apparel value 
chain, together with a demeanor and approach that would meld with our cohesive 
and forward-thinking senior executive team. We are fortunate to have found 
that person in Douglas Sheridan. Not only have we given him the reins of our 
entire Finished Goods business, he immediately becomes a key contributor to 
our corporate strategy and international business development initiatives. 
Douglas is a proven winner and will offer immeasurable help to Garmatex on 
many fronts as we continue our trajectory to the vanguard of the fabric and 
performance apparel industries."
