Mike Tilki Promoted to Vice President of Component Sales at Latex International

Latex International has promoted Mike Tilki to vice president of domestic and international component sales. He will continue to report to the company’s vice president of global sales Jim Siragusa.

Tilki first joined Latex International in 1999 as a product marketing manager. As the company’s bedding business grew, Tilki transitioned to the sales force, tasked with managing multiple East Coast mattress component accounts and developing comprehensive sales trainings sessions. After growing the company’s customer base, he was promoted to director of sales in 2007 and given responsibility for all national account domestic customers. Most recently he was vice president of sales, North America.

“We are pleased with the way Mike has successfully developed our domestic sales over the last several years,” said Latex International President and Chief Executive Officer David Fisher. “Global interest in Talalay Latex is growing at a rapid pace. Putting our global and domestic component business under one umbrella made sense because it allows us to share insights gained from Europe and Asia with our domestic partners.”
