Wilson reports to Kevin Damewood, executive vice president of sales.

McLean will remain a member of the Kingsdown board of directors. Along with his post with the company, he was active in the International Sleep Products Association, serving on ISPA's Better Sleep Council for 17 years, 12 of those years as chairman.
