Jeff Papalia

Vice President of Textile Operations

As Vice President of Textile Operations, Jeff Papalia oversees all aspects of business development, sourcing, production, and quality for the textile product line. His focus is on streamlining current production and expanding and developing the program within the federal, state, and commercial textile industry.

Jeff brings more than 30 years of experience in the apparel cut and sew textile industry, including military-government procurement manufacturing. Most recently, Jeff served as Vice President of MMI Textiles, which set record sales in 2020 under his leadership. Jeff secured military-related opportunities and developed the supply of PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) into a long-term business line. Jeff uses his talent for building relationships as well as his industry experience and skillset in the military, commercial, and most recently, in PPE Textiles to engender confidence. Customers know that their products will be manufactured without quality defects and delivered on time.

Jeff’s extensive knowledge of the AbilityOne® Program comes from 15 years as Program Manager, Textiles with National Industries for the Blind and as Plant Manager with Winston-Salem Industries for the Blind. At NIB, Jeff directed more than 100 projects from inception to successful addition to the official Procurement List. This empowers associated agencies to secure contracts that support the ultimate goal – job creation for people who are blind.

Being part of the Bestwork team is a bit of a homecoming for Jeff as he is an alumnus of Philadelphia College of Textiles & Science and spent more than two years at Jones Apparel Group. Outside of work, Jeff is an avid golfer, a hobby since he joined his college golf team. His philanthropic heart drove him to raise more than $250,000 for the St. Francis University Golf Team to build a Driving Range.
