Alliance Sleep Products, a Restonic licensee based in Buffalo, N.Y., has hired two vice presidents of sales as part of a growth strategy that also includes the recent opening of a new, 60,000–square–foot manufacturing plant in Buffalo.
“While these investments may appear bold in the present economy—and they are—a tough economy produces great opportunities for conservatively managed companies. We are taking full advantage of strategic opportunities for growth,” said Tom Comer, Alliance Sleep Products chief executive officer.
Davis Odom was hired as vice president of sales for Restonic’s Southeastern region, a newly created position. Odom’s background includes stints as regional sales manager for Spring Air and key account representative and regional trainer for Serta. He also owned and operated a furniture store construction business.
“Davis will be an extraordinary asset to our team as we continue our growth path” said Laurie Tokarz, executive vice president of sales and marketing.
Tom Hill was hired as vice president of sales for Restonic’s Northeastern region, also a new position. Hill has experience in both retail and wholesale mattress sales. He served in various sales, marketing and training posts during his seven years with Sealy. He also spent two years as marketing manager and bedding buyer for Levin Furniture.
“We are confident that Tom’s track record of success in sales, combined with his experience in creating motivating sales training programs, will be key to our future growth,” Tokarz said.
