Select Comfort Corporation, the nation's leading bed retailer and creator of the SLEEP NUMBER bed, announced that the company has separated the positions of chairman of the board and chief executive officer.

The company's board of directors has appointed Ervin Shames as chairman. Bill McLaughlin, who has held both positions of chairman and chief executive officer since 2004, will continue in his role as president and chief executive officer of the company as well as board director.

"Today's decision is the result of the board's ongoing review of best practices with regard to corporate governance," said Shames. "On behalf of the board, I want to thank Bill for his four years of leadership in the role of chairman. I look forward to continuing to work with him and his team in my new capacity as chairman as we continue to position Select Comfort for long-term success."

Shames has served on Select Comfort's board since 1996. From 1996 to 1999, he held the position of chairman and has been the company's lead director since 2004.

"The board and I agree that separating the roles of chairman and chief executive officer is consistent with leading corporate governance principles," said McLaughlin.

"With this new structure, I will now be able to devote all my energy to the leadership and management of this company, as well as entirely focus on driving our growth and profitability initiatives. I look forward to continuing to work with our board as we further build on Select Comfort's status as the industry leader in innovative sleep products."
