CHARLOTTE, N.C.--Perfect Fit has named Brian McAlear to the newly created position of Canadian market representative.

McAlear will lead the company's efforts to expand its customer-service and manufacturing reach into the Canadian home-fashions and furnishings industry. Dan Hammer, Perfect Fit's chief executive officer, said the addition of McAlear is a major step toward turning the company into a global vendor by enhancing its service, manufacturing, product development and marketing capabilities north of the U.S. border.

McAlear's career includes serving as vice president of Canadian operations for Dan River, the U.S. textiles producer that was liquidated two years ago.
