McRoskey Taps Contreras as President, 1st Non-Family Member

San Francisco, Calif.-based luxury brand McRoskey Mattress has announced Vanessa Contreras as its new president.

For the first time in its nearly 120-year history, the company has named a non-family member to lead day-to-day operations. Contreras has been part of McRoskey’s management team since 2007, and will oversee all operations of the business.

Contreras reports to Robin Azevedo, the granddaughter of co-founder Edward McRoskey, who is CEO and brand ambassador. Azevedo was president of McRoskey until the recent sale of the manufacturing, marketing and national distribution rights to the brand to Fresno, Calif.-based Pleasant Mattress.

“Vanessa and I have worked together for more than a decade. She is laser-focused and understands the heritage of the brand and its importance in the community. There’s no better person to lead the company through this transition and into the next phase of our retail growth,” said Azevedo.

Contreras joined McRoskey Mattress in 2007 as human resource director. She was promoted to director of human resources and manufacturing in 2012 and was named vice president of human resources and manufacturing two years later.
