Premium beds manufacturer Hypnos has named James Keen md of its retail arm and appointed Clive Parry as director of UK retail sales.

The senior appointments follow the creation of two companies last year: Hypnos Contract Beds for the hospitality market and Hypnos Ltd serving retail customers. John Woolley, also an internal appointment, was earlier named md of the contract business.

Group md Stephen Ward said: “I am delighted to announce these appointments as they are an important step in the evolution of the group, as we continue to grow at a phenomenal rate. Sales have doubled in the last four years and this trend looks set to continue.”

“The fact that we are also able to appoint the latest two roles from within, shows that we are developing great people within the organisation who have in-depth knowledge of Hypnos and the markets that we trade in. Their specialist expertise combined with their passion for continued success means the business has an increased focus on each market with dedicated team to help drive the business forward.”
