Independent mattress manufacturer, Blue Bell Mattress Company, strengthened its senior management team by hiring David Brault as its first chief financial officer.
Bringing more than 25 years’ experience in corporate finance to Blue Bell, Brault will oversee the brand’s budgeting, strategic forecasting and financial analysis. He reports to Mark Kolovson, Blue Bell’s chief executive officer.
“With our recent growth, it became clear that we needed additional depth and financial expertise on our management team, and David is the perfect fit for this new position,” said Kolovson. “His analytical skills and people skills will enable him to make immediate contributions to our team.”
Since February 2016, Brault had been chief financial officer at Pro-Vigil Surveillance Services, a provider of remote video surveillance and monitoring services. Earlier, he was chief financial officer at Eemax Inc., the nation’s largest provider of electric tankless water heaters, from 2009 to 2016, and was chief financial officer at high-end furniture and accessories resource Interlude Home from 2002 to 2009.
“Mark and his team have built a wonderful business that is poised for even more growth. I am excited to be a part of it,” said Brault.
A graduate of Babson College, Brault lives in Connecticut with his family.
