Gold Bond Appoints Ken Mazda to VP of Key Accounts
Independent mattress producer Gold Bond has named Ken Mazda to its newly created position of vice president of key accounts.
Mazda has several decades of experience as a senior executive with leading sleeps retailers and is considered one of the top merchants in the category.
In his new role, Mazda will focus on working with key accounts for Gold Bond throughout the nation to increase traffic and sales.
Most recently, Mazda was general manager of The Dump in Philadelphia. Prior to that position, he was president of America’s Mattress – Philadelphia, a six-store chain, was vp of 1800mattress, and president and CEO of Nationwide Discount Sleep Centers, a 60-store chain in the Philadelphia area with 250 employees.
“Ken is a master retailer that really understands how to merchandise the selling floor and maximize traffic and profit. He is a great addition to our team because he can work with our retailers to grow their business through innovative product selection, marketing and sales training,” said Robert Naboicheck, president.
“There has never been a time of greater opportunity for strong independent manufacturers like Gold Bond,” said Mazda. “While larger manufacturers are distracted by several significant challenges and Chinese importers are being squeezed by tariffs, strong domestic manufacturers like our company can really provide great value, quality and service to retailers.”
