Latex International Realigns Components Sales

LatexInternationalSHELTON, Conn.-Latex International has reset its components sales strategy, including the assignment of more responsibility to executives Mike Tilki and Jeff Gober.

Tilki, vice president of domestic and international component sales, is now also responsible for sales in the eastern part of the United States.

Kluft in 2008, and also served in executive positions with Southerland Bedding and FXI before returning to Latex International.
