We are confident that his expertise in these key areas will add significant value to Tempur Sealy.”

In connection with the appointment of Thompson, current chairman Frank A. Doyle will assume the role of lead director, and interim CEO W. Timothy Yaggi will continue in his role of chief operating officer.

Thompson said, “Tempur Sealy is an outstanding company with iconic global brands and a talented and dedicated team. I am honoured by the Board's confidence in me as the next leader of this great company and I look forward to working with Tim and the entire management team to build upon Tempur Sealy's strategy and drive profitable long-term growth for the benefit of all our stakeholders.”

Thompson presently serves as a member of the Board of Directors for Asbury Automotive Group, Inc., Houston Wire and Cable Co. and Conn's, Inc. He earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas.
