Studio Moderna Brands International, the company behind Dormeo Octaspring, has appointed Greg Suthern its COO. Greg brings a wealth of experience to the company as it continues the rapid growth of its innovative Octaspring mattress brand. Having started his career at DFS, he joined Dreams as marketing director in 2003.
In his most recent position as COO of Dreams, he was responsible for retail, marketing, online, buying, format, training and merchandising.
Greg says: “What intrigued me with Studio Moderna was the opportunity to take a truly revolutionary product international. The product is quite simply the most exciting thing to happen in beds for decades. This is really the iPad of beds, in that it’s a true game-changer. As a result, demand is already huge, so we need to expand our production capacity and be ready for sales to explode in 2013.”
CEO of Studio Moderna Brands International Kym Bramm adds: “We’re delighted to have appointed Greg. This has been a tremendous first year for Octaspring, with major launches in the UK, US, Canada, and Japan in February 2013, and Greg’s appointment is another significant step in expanding our growth and satisfying demand. His vast experience, expertise and understanding of the requirements of the bedding retail industry will be a major driver in moving us to the next level internationally.”
