BOSTON—Spring Air veteran Nick Bates, who has been with Spring Air International since 2009, has been promoted from vice president to president of the bedding producer, announced CEO Ed Bates.

In his new post, Bates, who is a nephew of Ed Bates, succeeds Rick Robinson, who passed away in mid-December.

“Although we continue to miss Rick, we’re also very fortunate that Nick has been with Spring Air for eight years and is prepared to take on the job,” Bates said. “Our licensees are also very supportive of his appointment.”

A graduate in Marketing Management from the University of Massachusetts, Bates joined Spring Air in 2009 as a sales and marketing coordinator. In 2012 he was promoted to director of corporate accounts and was named vice president in 2016.

Bates is married and lives in Reading, Mass.
