King Koil has expanded its management team to include bedding industry sales veteran Scott Moore, who joins the luxury brand as vice president of sales for the west coast.
Moore is one of the industry’s most respected sales leaders with nearly three decades of experience as a retail RSA and bedding industry executive with major brands. He most recently was vice president of regional sales for Restonic’s Visionary Sleep.
Prior to that role, Moore had a 20-year career with Serta Mattress Company and later its parent company Serta Simmons Bedding (SSB). He started as a territory manager for Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois, before being promoted to Midwest district sales manager, then advancing to district sales manager for the Midwest district—and ultimately becoming regional vice president of sales. While developing strong relationships with dealers at all levels, Moore is widely known for his experience nurturing relationships with Top 100 Retailers and leading buying groups.
Before entering the mattress business, Moore was a market manager, store manager and RSA for Leath/Modern Age Furniture. The well-known, full-line furniture chain had 24 Midwest locations and seven in Florida.
“We are excited to have a sales professional of Scott’s caliber join King Koil’s senior management team,” said David Binke, chief executive officer of King Koil. “He is highly regarded by retailers large and small, which was very important to me, and he has built a reputation for developing strong relationships founded on service, while driving sustainable growth, both as a retailer and as a manufacturer. He has both the experience and the dedication necessary to help us manage the accelerated pace and high rate of growth King Koil is experiencing, and he is going to play an integral role in our sales organization moving forward.”
Moore is a U.S. Navy veteran who was, among other assignments, watch supervisor for the Anti-Submarine Warfare Communications Center in Iceland. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Western Florida. He resides in Long Beach, California.

About King Koil:
A leading global mattress manufacturer, King Koil supports more than 25 licensees in more than 80 countries where King Koil mattresses are manufactured and sold. Headquartered in Avondale, Arizona, the company has a long, rich history that reaches back to 1898 when Samuel Bronstein founded United States Bedding in St. Paul, Minnesota. What started out as six employees in a small factory has continued to grow. During the 1930s, U.S. Bedding improved the bedspring and was looking for a new name for its product. From there, the King Koil name was born.
