Sleep accessories supplier Cadence Keen Innovations has promoted Steven Gordon to president.
The title formerly was held by the company’s founder and principal Sam Montross, who is now chief executive officer.
Gordon is responsible for managing all operations, sales and marketing functions, including overseeing new product launches for the Fort Lauderdale, Fla.–based company.
Gordon joined the privately held company in 2006 as senior vice president of sales and marketing. He has more than 30 years of experience in sales and marketing. Previously, he was executive vice president of his family’s business, Melannco International, which was named an Inc. 500 fastest growing company during his tenure. Gordon began his career as a trial attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice.
At CKI, he is credited with leading the company through a significant period of growth, doubling sales and growing the customer base by 600%.
“Every entrepreneur’s challenge is to find the right people to take on leadership positions,” Montross said. “Over the years, Steven has proven his competency in building the company with passion and using the same good business ethics with which I started the business.”
