Sleep shop chain Mattress Giant, which has headquarters in Addison, Texas, has added industry veteran Mike Bookbinder to its management team.
Bookbinder was named executive vice president of merchandising and marketing. He reports to Michael Glazer, Mattress Giant president and chief executive officer.
“Mike Bookbinder is an extremely talented executive who will be a terrific addition to our Mattress Giant team,” Glazer said. “With his passion for the business and his experience in growing retail sales, I have no doubt he will quickly be a significant contributor to the growth and profitability of Mattress Giant.”
Most recently, Bookbinder was with mattress maker and licensing group Comfort Solutions, where he served as senior vice president of sales. The majority of Bookbinder’s career has been in retail. He spent 11 years with bedding chain Sleepy’s in a number of senior sales and marketing roles. He began his mattress industry career at City Mattress, where he rose to president.
“I am very excited to become part of the Mattress Giant team,” Bookbinder said. “I look forward to returning to my retail roots and believe that my background will allow me to help Mattress Giant grow its business.”
At Mattress Giant, Bookbinder replaces Dominick Azevedo, who left the retailer in May to lead Advanced Sleep Concepts.
