Classic Sleep Products, which has headquarters in Jessup, Md., has hired retail veteran Harry Goodman as vice president of Northeastern sales, a newly created position. Classic Sleep produces and markets the Dormia, Natural Expressions and Space Age brands.
Previously, Goodman was vice president of sales for retailer Sleepy’s. Prior to that, he was area manager for Fabric Bonanza and a regional sales manager for Big & Tall Shops. He reports to Justin Gannon, Classic Sleep vice president of sales, who also recently joined the company. Gannon previously led merchandising and marketing efforts for Mattress Discounters.
“Harry brings a wealth of expertise and contacts in the Northeast and we are pleased to have him on our team,” Gannon said. “This is the first of several key initiatives we are implementing as we plan for future growth.”
“There is no question that with Harry from Sleepy’s and Justin from Mattress Discounters, we are fielding some of the best players in the mattress retail business,” said Mike Zippelli, Classic Sleep president. “They were both key retail executives who can now deliver that same expertise to our clients and help them grow their businesses.”
