Pure LatexBLISS has hired Joseph Peterson, a 15-year industry veteran, to lead sales for the company in the northwestern U.S.
Peterson most recently served as key account manager at International Bedding Corporation, where he was responsible for training and managing associates across California. Recognized by IBC as the top specialty bedding sales person in 2010, Peterson is credited with growing his territory by 500 percent in three years, with half of that growth coming from signing new dealers. Peterson first got his start in the industry in 1998 as a customer service and key account manager at Serta.
“As we continue to expand nationally, we need strong leadership at a regional level to support our growth,” said Pure LatexBLISS Co-Founder and CEO Kurt Ling. “In addition to his in-depth understanding of our industry, Joseph is a proven leader with a broad base of customer relationships and a long history of sales success, driving high performance results. His key account sales experience is going to be a tremendous asset for Pure LatexBLISS as we build our brand in the northwest.”
