Boyd Specialty Sleep, a maker of specialty mattresses and sleep–related products, has named John Clark regional vice president of sales, a newly created post.
Clark is based in Winter Haven, Fla., and is responsible for sales and sales development for sleep products and the company’s accent furniture line in 10 southern states and western Pennsylvania. He reports to Dennis Boyd, president and founder of the St. Louis–based company.
Previously, Clark was vice president of sales and marketing for mattress maker Southern Dreams. Prior to that, he was a sales and marketing executive for Paramount. His background also includes nearly two decades at Sealy as a national account executive and territory manager, as well as management and ownership positions at two food companies.
“John has a wide–ranging background with primary experience in the mattress and food industries,” Boyd said. “His expertise in marketing, sales and sales management will be very valuable to the further development of our southern region and the growth of our company overall.”
