Former Maytag executive Ernie Park will join Select Comfort Corporation (Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.) as senior vice president and chief information officer (CIO), effective May 30. Park replaces former CIO Mike Thyken, who was recently appointed vice president, Process Development. In this capacity, Thyken will provide process design and expansion support for the company's International and New Channel Development team.

Park served as corporate senior vice president and chief information officer for Maytag, where he was instrumental in the transformation and realignment of the IT function. This included implementing LeanSigma (a combination of lean manufacturing and Six Sigma) and other strategic initiatives to leverage best practices, increase efficiencies and standardize technologies and tools to turn IT into a highly responsive business function at Maytag.

Select Comfort is a leading bed OEM in the U.S., with 30 U.S.-issued or pending patents. The company designs, manufactures and markets adjustable-firmness mattresses featuring air-chamber technology, branded the Sleep Number(R) bed. The bed uses an electronic control to operate an air pump system, which adjusts and maintains a user-selected level of pressure and corresponding firmness level in the mattress.
