Stocks in this article: SCSS

Select Comfort Corporation (NASDAQ: SCSS) today announced several key changes to its senior leadership team in support of the company’s growth and long-term, customer-focused strategies.

“This is an exciting time for Sleep Number as we continue to focus on delivering an unparalleled sleep experience for our customers,” explained Shelly Ibach, president and CEO, Select Comfort. “To that end, we’ve built an experienced, consumer-centric senior leadership team dedicated to realizing our potential as both a brand and company for the benefit of customers, employees and shareholders.”

Notably, Michael Bills will join the company as senior vice president and chief marketing officer. Michael brings to the role more than 20 years of experience developing integrated marketing strategies for global brands. Currently, he is the executive director of the Innovation Initiative at the Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, where he created and managed the college’s Center of Excellence focused on corporate innovation. Prior to joining The Ohio State University, Michael was president of Retail Planning Associates and managing partner, the Americas, for Fitch – a WPP agency.

New members of the company’s senior leadership team also include Andy Carlin, who is promoted from vice president to senior vice president and chief sales officer, continuing to oversee all sales channels and real estate. Andy joined the company in 2008 after spending more than 20 years in sales leadership roles for companies such as Gander Mountain and Kohl’s Department Stores.

Annie Bloomquist is promoted from vice president to senior vice president and chief product officer, and joins the senior leadership team. In her expanded role, she will lead product innovation including product management, development and R&D for all Sleep Number products. Prior to joining the company four years ago, Annie held leadership positions in product and merchandising at large retailers including Macy’s and Marshall Field’s Department Stores for Target Corporation.
