MINNEAPOLIS-Select Comfort has named Michael Bills senior vice president and chief marketing officer, one of a number of moves that has altered the mattress manufacturer/retailer's corporate structure.

Bills, who will join the company at an unspecified date, currently serves as executive director of the Innovation Initiative at the Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University. Other changes at Select Comfort include the promotion of Andy Carlin from vice president to senior vice president and chief sales officer, continuing to oversee all sales channels and real estate. Also, Annie Bloomquist has been promoted to vice president and chief product officer, in charge of product innovation, product management, product development and research and development for all of the company's Sleep Number products.

Hunter Saklad, vice president of consumer insights and strategy, will join the senior leadership team and report directly to Shelly Ibach, president and CEO. Kathy Roedel, executive vice president and chief technology and services officer, has become executive vice president and chief services and fulfillment officer.

Remaining in their roles on the senior leadership team are Wendy Schoppert, executive vice president and chief financial officer; Mark Kimball, senior vice president and general counsel; and Karen Richard, senior vice president and chief human capital officer.

In a Select Comfort statement announcing the new structure, Ibach said the changes are part of the company's efforts "on delivering an unparalleled sleep experience for our customers. To that end, we've built an experienced, consumer-centric senior leadership team dedicated to realizing our potential as both a brand and company for the benefit of customers, employees and shareholders."
