He will work closely with the company’s experienced financial leadership team, including Dave Schwantes, Vice President of Finance - Investor Relations and FP&A.

Prior to joining Sleep Number, Krusmark served in the assurance and advisory practices as a Certified Public Accountant with EY and Arthur Andersen. Sleep Number has retained Korn Ferry, a leading executive search firm, to conduct a search for a permanent CFO.
