Fresno, California-based bed maker Pleasant Mattress Inc. has named Mike Moore to the newly created position of chief of staff.
Moore, who has been with the company for eight years and has nearly 25 years of experience in the bedding industry, continues to oversee sales and marketing.
In his new post, he is charged with driving the company’s internal strategic priorities and representing it at industry and public events. Rion Morgenstern, president and chief executive officer, said Moore’s new responsibilities will allow Morgenstern to spend more time strategizing and focusing on the company’s growth.
“Mike has been an integral part of our organization for eight years, and during that time, he has earned my great trust and faith,” he said. “We’re putting more responsibility on Mike to be the leader of leaders within our organization.”
Morgenstern said the company’s recent growth through the acquisition of the manufacturing arm of San Francisco-based McRoskey and expansions with its licensing partners has created additional priorities for him.
“My responsibilities are now pushed further outside the company in looking at Pleasant Mattress’ strategic growth,” Morgenstern said. “I rely on Mike to check my blind spots and ensure my vision translates to the planned growth trajectory.”
Moore said: “Rion has a tremendous vision for how he wants to continue to mold our business in this ever-shifting market and I look forward to assisting him even more.”
Pleasant Mattress is a licensee and manufacturer of the Spring Air and Eclipse International brands and manufactures the McRoskey brand.
