Mike Quinn has been named director of operations at Atlanta-based latex mattress and accessories maker Pure LatexBLISS. In the newly created position, he oversees all manufacturing and distribution for the company.
For the past 13 years, Quinn has held a number of positions at Shelton, Conn.-based Latex International, the new majority owner of Pure LatexBLISS. Most recently, he was director of operations for its largest latex factory. He joined the company as a lab technician as part of his degree program at Northwestern University.
“As our production needs and distribution continue to grow at a brisk pace, we felt it was time to have a dedicated operations leader for our organization,” said Kurt Ling, Pure LatexBLISS co-founder and chief executive officer. “Our expanded relationship with Latex International presented us with an unprecedented opportunity to find a seasoned executive in-house to move into this key role for us.”
Quinn is based in Connecticut and reports to Tom Sirois, Latex International chief operating officer.
