Bill McLaughlin steps aside from Select Comfort

The chief executive officer of Select Comfort Corporation is stepping down.

Bill McLaughlin will leave the Plymouth-based mattress-maker on June 1. McLaughlin is credited with helping create and launch Select Comfort's Sleep Number brand in 2001.

McLaughlin is a member of Minnesota Public Radio's Board of Directors.
