Richard Cotter, chairman of Silentnight, says: “Neil leaves with the very best wishes of everyone at Silentnight. His work over the past four years been pivotal to the success of the business and we are now uniquely placed to capitalise on this, building on our purpose of being the UK’s most trusted sleep brand and growing our presence in the wider sleep category. We wish Neil well for his next chapter and look forward to more success under Tracey’s leadership.”
