Mattress Online announces key hires and warehouse expansion

Alison Straw joins as general operations manager, while Adam Blaxhall and Michael Rhodes join the firm as content strategist and e-commerce marketing manager respectively, as Mattress Online expands its warehouse space

Mattress Online has announced the appointment of a general operations manager, as well as a content strategist and e-commerce marketing manager as it recently revealed new warehousing space at its Rotherham headquarters. 

Alison Straw has joined as general operations manager after 10 years at global hearing solutions firm, Med-El . She will reportedly oversee operations across warehousing, logistics, customer service and dispatch for the online retailer. 

Adam Blaxhall and Michael Rhodes have taken up roles in the firm’s Sheffield office as content strategist and e-commerce marketing manager respectively. Blaxhall spent 10 years with the Press Association and is said to have a strong in-house and agency background, while Rhodes joins the team from BT where he was responsible for delivering high-end performance. 

In addition to welcoming three new members to the Mattress Online team, a recent investment in additional warehouse space has increased the Rotherham footprint to approximately 135,000 square feet. 

Steve Adams, chief executive officer, said: “Mattress Online grew rapidly during the previous two years and we have great plans to keep expanding with new stores and an augmented Development and Digital division. 

“Specialist skills are crucial when we recruit, so I am delighted to have welcomed a trio of strong new hires in Alison, Adam and Michael who each bring their own unique experience and contribution to our growth plans.” 

Martin Eastwood, chief operating officer, added: “Our commercial and operational growth and future plans have necessitated the expansion, so we’re excited to have acquired space in close proximity to our current warehouses to increase our stockholding. 

“Having more stock to hand means that our customers will see the benefit with continued next-day delivery and availability of new ranges of beds, mattress and bedding products from Mattress Online. It’s fantastic news.”
