Mattress maker Sealy has promoted Mike Murray to senior vice president, general counsel and secretary of the company. He reports to Larry Rogers, president and chief executive officer of the Trinity, N.C.–based producer.
“Mike brings a unique skill set to his new role that goes beyond his legal expertise,” Rogers said. “Mike offers a decade of experience in the bedding industry and has a keen understanding of Sealy’s business and operations.”
Murray has been practicing law since 1991. Prior to joining Sealy in 1999, Murray was a senior attorney for Aeroquip–Vickers, now a division of Eaton. Since joining the mattress industry, he has played an active role in flammability regulation and other industry issues and has been “integrally involved in all aspects of (Sealy), including working with retailers, suppliers, manufacturing and the financial restructuring of the business, public filings and corporate governance,” the company said.
