Chris Henning rejoins King Koil in EVP role
David Perry -- Furniture Today, January 13, 2014
WILLOWBROOK, Ill. — Bedding veteran Chris Henning has rejoined King Koil in the new position of executive vice president of sales and marketing.
Henning, who left King Koil in 2012 to take a newly created post as president of North America for the Dormeo Octaspring brand, had been with King Koil since 2010 as senior vice president of strategic planning and business development.
In assuming his new responsibilities, he will report to Dave Roberts, King Koil president, who said he is pleased that Henning, with his extensive industry experience, has returned to the company.
"Chris has a proven industry record as a highly effective leader, having held executive positions at Kingsdown, Tempur-Pedic and Simmons," Roberts said. "Given our ambitious growth plans for the next five years, I'm very confident of the important role Chris will play not only in leading our sales and marketing drives but in helping the King Koil organization attain its objectives."
Henning, who will attend this month's Las Vegas Market, said he will eventually relocate to the Chicago area from Plano, Texas, his home for many years. Henning left Dormeo Octaspring late last year.
