NEW YORK (August 24, 2022)Allegis Partners (AP), a global executive search firm, announces the placement of Thomas Fellner as Chief Financial Officer at Valley Forge Flag Company, headquartered in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. The search was conducted by Robert Lambert Managing Director, and Diego Ash, Director.

 

Valley Forge Flag Company is a premier domestic manufacturer and distributor of flags, banners, poles and accessories. Founded in 1882, the company is fourth-generation family-owned and operated, employing over 400 people, with manufacturing and distribution facilities located throughout South Carolina, Alabama, and Pennsylvania. In 2021, Sky Island Capital, a  private equity firm based in Dallas, completed a majority investment in Valley Forge Flag.

 

Under the new ownership structure, Tom will be an essential strategic partner to the CEO, Valley Forge Flag leadership and Sky Island principals, working toward sustainable, profitable growth; collaborating in the development and execution of a strategic plan; and enhancing the overall operations of the organization.

 

“Tom’s appointment as CFO comes as part of Sky Island Capital’s plan for organizational change within the Valley Forge leadership team,” said Diego Ash. “Tom is not only a strategic finance executive, but he also brings strong operational finance capabilities, a global perspective and a bias for rolling up his sleeves and getting into the details.”

Tom has 20-plus years of comprehensive and diverse finance experience domestically and internationally. Before Valley Forge Flag, Tom was the Chief Financial Officer for Tietex International, a global textile manufacturer, overseeing worldwide finance and accounting. During his Tietex tenure, he also spent time in Thailand as CFO for Tietex Asia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Titex International. He also held finance and controller roles at Bradken, Nyrstar and Imerys. Tom has an MBA from Wake Forest University and a B.S. in Business Administration from Northeastern University.
