Kimberly Fisher, Chief Operating Officer of both Talalay Global and Pure Talalay Bliss, has been promoted by the companies' Board of Directors to President over both entities.
The promotion, effective Feb. 22 and announced by CEO David Fisher, adds sales and marketing to her existing COO responsibilities.
Commenting on her expanded role with the world’s largest supplier and producer of Talalay bedding and sleep accessory products, Fisher said she views herself as a “paradigm shifter” who is passionately focused on continuous improvement.
“The key drivers throughout our organization are safety, quality, delivery, inventory and productivity,” Fisher noted, adding that “Success lies in focusing on and balancing those priorities on a consistent basis to achieve strategic top-line growth and bottom-line impact.”
In an industry that remains male-dominated, particularly in the manufacturing arena, Fisher said she feels equally comfortable on a shop floor as in a boardroom and is extremely pleased with the opportunities the promotion presents.
